MSDO Fellowship

The Micrographic Surgery and Dermatologic Oncology (MSDO) Fellowship at the University of Colorado is a one-year fellowship accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) which begins on July 1st of each academic year, and is based within the Department of Dermatology on the Anschutz Medical Campus. The University of Colorado has offered a fellowship in Mohs Micrographic Surgery for over 30 years, and graduates of the program are in academic, military, and private practice settings all over the United States and internationally.

Mariah Brown, MD


Julie Clarke
Residency and Fellowship Coordinator


Dr. Mariah Brown serves as the Program Director for the MSDO fellowship. Dr. Brown has been Program Director for eight years and oversees the educational curriculum for the fellowship.

Affiliated faculty include: Oculoplastics (Dr. Eric Hink and Dr. Sophie Liao); Cutaneous Oncology (Dr. Theresa Medina); Radiation Oncology (Dr. Ryan Lanning); ENT Facial Plastics (Dr. Adam Terella); and Dermatopathology (Dr. Joshua Wisell and Dr. Whitney High).


The fellowship focuses on the management of complex cutaneous oncology patients at a tertiary medical center. Fellows participate in Mohs micrographic surgery five days a week, with an average case volume of approximately 1,500 Mohs cases per year. Training emphasizes Mohs surgery, surgical reconstruction, and multi-disciplinary patient care. Fellows are exposed to the full range of surgical and medical management of cutaneous neoplasms. There is no dedicated cosmetic or general dermatology portion of the fellowship.


The faculty and fellows in MSDO participate in translational and clinical research, including tumor banking. They also participate in the University of Colorado Cutaneous Oncology Research Collaborative. MSDO fellows undertake their own independent research and scholarly projects during the course of the academic year.


Salary, vacation, and benefits are set by the University of Colorado Graduate Medical Education Department.  The MSDO fellow is considered a PGY-5 position, regardless of prior years of training.

The Graduate Medical Education website will provide additional information on the fellowship program, as well as an informative video on training at the University of Colorado.
