Being the only academic hospital-based Mohs unit in the state, IU School of Medicine is a primary referral site able to offer a multidisciplinary approach to the treatment of large, rare and advanced cutaneous tumors. Furthermore, having Indiana’s largest and most comprehensive organ transplant center, the Mohs unit treats a large number of high-risk skin cancer patients secondary to immunosuppression.
Fellows in this program have regular participation with a Multidisciplinary Cutaneous Melanoma/Oncology Conference and regular interaction with rotating residents as well as learners from other surgical subspecialties, which provides valuable perspective necessary for collaboration in multidisciplinary patient care.
Wednesday mornings once a month is set aside for fellow-oriented teaching. Case based conferences and journal clubs covering topics pertinent to dermatologic surgery and cutaneous oncology are covered during this monthly conference. Fellows also participate in the National Dermatologic Surgery Journal Club once a month. Micrographic surgery and dermatologic oncology fellows also attend and participate in the residents’ weekly conferences encompassing a thorough review of dermatologic surgery topics as well as the Annual Dermatologic Surgery (fresh cadaver) Course. Every fellow in this program also attends the annual ACMS meeting.
