Pediatric Dermatology Fellowship


The Pediatric Dermatology fellowship at the University of Colorado is approved by the American Board of Dermatology (ABD).  The goal of this pediatric dermatology fellowship is to provide future leaders in pediatric dermatology experiences in high-quality patient care, teaching, and generating scholarship in order to develop the knowledge and skills to become an expert in the field.  Graduates of our program will excel at providing teriary-level outpatient care and inpatient consultative services for children with skin disorders and will also be effective educators of students, residents and other health providers, and will have the foundation to launch a career in clinical or translational research.

This is a one year postgraduate fellowship designed for the individual who has completed three years of dermatology residency training to develop additional clinical and academic skills in pediatric dermatology.

The trainee will spend up to eight half-days per week in pediatric dermatology clinics and sub-specialty clinics, such as vascular anomalies and tumors clinic, epidermolysis bullosa clinic, and PCOS clinic
at Children’s Hospital Colorado.  Procedures such as pulsed dye laser ablation, excisional surgery, and treatment of hyperhidrosis are part of our clinical practice.

Fellows also see inpatient consults with the pediatric dermatology attending and attend didactic sessions, including Grand Rounds, dermatopathology review, journal club, and special lectures during the fellowship.

Fellows are expected to develop a special area of expertise within pediatric dermatology during the training period and publish in that area.

We are dedicated to training pediatric dermatologists for academic and teaching careers.

The program is directed by Dr. Anna L. Bruckner, a world-recognized authority in pediatric dermatology.
