Education

The Dermatology Department 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 two highly competitive fellowships for board certified dermatologists.  We also host the annual Mount Sinai Dermatology Spring Symposium, which brings together experts from all around the world to discuss the latest advances in dermatologic rejuvenation and reconstruction.

Mount Sinai Dermatology Spring Symposium

Every year, the Mount Sinai Dermatology Department offers The Spring Symposium – Advances in Rejuvenation and Reconstruction. The two-day event welcomes physicians and trainees in dermatologic and cosmetic surgery, facial plastic surgery, plastic surgery, oculoplastic surgery, and maxillofacial surgery. The program provides comprehensive demonstration and training in soft tissue rejuvenation and reconstruction techniques. During the hands-on sessions, experts perform procedures on live patients and cadaver models. The symposium also includes lectures, panel discussions, question-and-answer sessions, and small-group workshops with hands-on training with world leaders in the field. The Cosmetic Cadaver Workshop can provide more information.
