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.
