Thank you for your interest in our ASDS Dermatologic Cosmetic Surgery program and the ACGME approved Mohs Micrographic Surgery program at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. Our program offers one of the most broad spectrums training in reconstructive and cosmetic procedures.
The candidate will be working with two Mohs Surgeons (Dr. Khorasani and Dr. Kriegel) and will be exposed to approximately 1,500 Mohs cases with the majority of the cases repaired in house. In addition, the candidate will be exposed to tumescent liposuction, blepharoplasty, rhytidectomy, hair restoration and the most advanced lasers available. Fellows will also have the opportunity to rotate with our facial plastic surgeon Dr. Joshua Rosenberg for advanced cosmetic surgery cases.
This is a high volume fellowship with a diverse scope of clinical practices. Our previous fellows have qualified for the requirements set by the American Collage of Mohs Surgeons and the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery.
Our fellows are expected to help organize the annual cadaver course in the spring where residents from many specialties are invited to learn about reconstructive and cosmetic surgery. The fellow also has an active role in the clinical trials conducted by the surgical division and is expected to collaborate closely with our clinical trails division.
This is an extremely competitive fellowship; each year we receive about 35-50 applications and we interview about ten applicants for one spot starting August 1st. The application deadline is September 1st of the prior fall. Although not a prerequisite, a surgical PGY1 training is favored.
Candidates are usually invited for interviews in October and November.
