Education

The Kimberly and Eric J. Waldman Department of Dermatology at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai is involved in educating the next generation of expert dermatologists and dermatology researchers. To that end, we offer fellowships, for medical school graduates, as well as an annual research symposium.

Mount Sinai Dermatology Spring Symposium

Every year, the Mount Sinai Dermatology Department offers a Spring Symposium.

We provide a comprehensive demonstration and training in soft tissue rejuvenation and reconstruction techniques. During the hands-on sessions, experts perform procedures on live patients and synthetic models to demonstrate the latest techniques. The symposium also includes lectures, panel discussions, question-and-answer sessions, and small-group workshops with hands-on training.
