Ditto what was said. I have a friend who took on this very position and they had a great year. Let me tell you that not all research fellowship positions are equal and I was definately jealous of my buddy''s experience. He worked full time with 2 different PIs (one working on cutaneous lupus, the other on morphea), spending about 50% of the time in clinic. There was always a lot to do, but he worked hard and was very productive (i.e. published quite a bit) during his time there. The previous fellow was a post-PGY1, but I guess from this post, MSIII and above is ok too.

Not to mention that UTSW is a powerhouse derm program...
