The Micrographic Surgery and Dermatologic Oncology (MSDO) Fellowship at the University of Colorado is a one-year fellowship that begins July 1 of the academic year. This fellowship is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).
The fellowship is based within the Department of Dermatology on the Anschutz Medical Campus (www.cuanschutz.edu). The University of Colorado has offered a fellowship in Mohs Micrographic Surgery for over 30 years. Graduates of the program are in academic, military, and private practice settings all over the country and internationally.
Dr. Mariah Brown serves as the Program Director for the MSDO fellowship. Dr. Brown has been Program Director for seven years and oversees the educational curriculum for the fellowship. Dr. Misha Miller is also core faculty for the fellowship and serves as the Associate Program Director for both the MSDO fellowship and Dermatology residency.
Affiliated faculty include Oculoplastics (Dr. Eric Hink and Dr. Sophie Liao), Cutaneous Oncology (Dr. Theresa Medina and Dr. Karl Lewis), 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 5 days a week, with an average case volume of approximately 1500 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 participate in the University of Colorado Cutaneous Oncology Research Collaborative. MSDO fellows also 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
