The UCSF Psoriasis and Skin Treatment Center currently has an opening for a full-time, clinical research fellow to begin ASAP although start date can be negotiated.
Under the mentorship of Dr. Wilson Liao, Dr. Tina Bhutani, and Dr. John Koo, the fellow will gain a thorough understanding of the design and conduct of clinical trials in addition to learning the art of using various therapeutic modalities in the treatment of psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, and other chronic dermatologic conditions.
Salary and benefits are commensurate with the fellow's PGY level. Acceptance into this fellowship has no direct bearing on the chance of being accepted to the UCSF Dermatology residency program. However, the clinical research and the specialized clinical experience gained during the fellowship are likely to greatly enhance one's credentials and previous fellows have been successful in the dermatology match. Even for those who have already been accepted into a residency program or completed training in another field, this is a unique opportunity to gain expertise in clinical research for those interested incorporating clinical trials into their practice.
The fellowship is designed for physicians who have completed at least three years of post-graduate residency training and who are thus eligible to be licensed to practice medicine in California. We unfortunately do not have the capacity to support international medical graduates who have not completed residency training here in the US.
