Examining Dr. Mohs: With no formal residency training, doctor devised revolutionary technique
October 01, 2009
The treatise on the "Evolution of Mohs" written by your senior staff correspondent John Jesitus and published in your July 2009 issue contains a very significant error. Frederick Mohs' professional life was not "general surgery's loss," for Dr. Mohs never was a surgeon (nor a dermatologist). I was informed he "completed an internship - most likely of the rotating kind - and then started his research and practice."
