Background on Medical Dermatology Fellowship:
Medical Dermatology is a sub-specialty of Dermatology that encompasses cutaneous manifestations of systemic disease. Much of this field intertwines with Rheumatology, Oncology, and non-healing wounds of multiple etiologies. Medical Dermatologists see some of the most difficult Dermatologic cases, yet these specialists are few in number. There is a growing need for more of these specialists, who are often receiving referrals from surrounding states. Medical Dermatology is not an ACGME approved fellowship, but the field is overseen by the Medical Dermatology Society.

The fellowship is ideal for motivated individuals who wish to gain advanced clinical experience in the management of complex Medical Dermatology patients. The program will provide rigorous clinical training in a private practice setting, specializing in the care of patients with cutaneous lymphoma, autoimmune skin diseases including vasculitis, connective tissue diseases, bullous diseases, psoriasis, severe atopic dermatitis, and intense wound care. Practical management strategies for systemic medications, including immune-modulatory therapies, will receive particular focus. An integral aspect of the program will be for the fellow to participate in ongoing clinical trials of state-of-the-art medications and other therapies. In addition, the fellow will be taught how to recognize Dermatologic manifestations of underlying severe systemic diseases. The fellowship duration will be 12 months, with some room for individualization, based on the trainee's personal interests and aspirations. The program will provide training that is ideal for those interested in a future career in either academic or community-based Medical Dermatology. Prerequisite training is successful completion of an Allopathic or Osteopathic Dermatology residency, and a valid Michigan medical license.

The fellowship will provide rigorous clinical training in both a private practice setting and within the St. Joseph Mercy Health System, Ann Arbor, MI and it's Dermatology Residency Program’s outpatient clinic and inpatient consultation services. Dr. Fivenson has over 25 years’ experience specializing in Medical Dermatology. The Medical Dermatology Fellow will work closely with Dr. Fivenson on these complex patients and gradually become an expert in the care of these most challenging of dermatologic patients.
