Welcome to the Division of Dermatology

The Harbor-UCLA Residency Training Program strives to prepare our residents to become leaders in their field by providing a strong and multifaceted foundation in medical dermatology, dermatopathology, procedural dermatology, and research. The Harbor-UCLA Dermatology Residency Training Program is proud to be part of the premier medical facility at Los Angeles County Harbor-UCLA Medical Center.

Our program provides outstanding opportunities for hands-on exposure, with faculty supervision and didactic teaching where we are constantly challenged by a wealth of pathology.  Our focus on caring for the underserved, clinical decision-making and continuity of care fosters a rich training environment for the development of outstanding clinicians with excellent skills and strong confidence.

The team environment among our faculty and residents provides a camaraderie to support a productive work environment within the Division of Dermatology.  Our dedicated volunteer faculty are a testament to the culture and community of our program—with satisfaction from not just teaching, but teaching at Harbor.
