The Pediatric Dermatology Fellowship Program was introduced in 1998. Based at Rady Children’s Hospital-San Diego, fellows are involved in clinical activities and research involving pediatric dermatology.
This fellowship is not ACGME-accredited, as there are no Pediatric Dermatology programs accredited at this time. It is directly associated with the UC San Diego Department of Pediatrics, which is an ACGME-accredited program. Pediatric dermatology has been recently approved as a designated specialty by the American Board of Medical Specialties. Over the next few years, program accreditation will most likely take place.

Fellowship candidates will have graduated from an ACGME-accredited medical school in the U.S. or Canada, or from an international medical school, and have fulfilled the requirements for continued medical training in the U.S. Candidates will have participated in residency training in the U.S., Canada or an international program.
Generally, pediatric dermatology fellows have completed a dermatology residency prior to a fellowship. However, fellows do not have to have completed their dermatology boards prior to starting fellowship. Completion of USMLE Steps I and II are required for application; completion of all three steps prior to commencement of fellowship is preferred. Fellowship selection will be contingent upon the candidate’s acquisition of California state medical licensure or licensure equivalent.
