Eligible candidates should apply by October 15, 2023, and one candidate will match in March 2024.
CeraVe recently announced its new partnership with the George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences to expand its residency training program. CeraVe will provide funding to support an ACGME-approved residency position in the department of dermatology resident program. According to the announcement, “As part of its mission to provide therapeutic skin care for all, CeraVe is reinforcing its commitment to making dermatology more accessible for both patients and students hoping to enter the field through a new partnership with George Washington University.”1
George Washington University’s department of dermatology heavily relies on the principle that community engagement and outreach in underserved communities to improve access to care should be the mission of dermatologists. No matter the type of collaboration, these core values are essential to the program’s residency training.
"Since its inception in 2015, our program has evolved rapidly in every facet of dermatology from nationally award-winning educational products to grant-funded underserved community engagement programs," said Adam Friedman, MD, professor and chair of dermatology and director of the residency program at George Washington University, in the news release. "This support from CeraVe does not simply provide the funding for an additional trainee, but rather provides us the opportunity to identify and prepare a future colleague, one who shares our passion, investment, and dedication to dermatology and our patients. More residents means more unique training and academic opportunities, more collaborations, more community engagement that ultimately translates into one more member of the dermatology community armed to take care of any and all patients."
Desired qualities and requirements for the applicant selection will include aptitude, intellectual curiosity, cultural humility, academic credentials, distance traveled, grit, personal characteristics, letters of recommendation, and more. Eligible candidates include those who are currently completing or have completed an ACGME-accredited PGY-1 year. Candidates can apply through ERAS until October 15, 2023, with interviews occurring this coming winter. One candidate will match in March 2024 and will start on July 1, 2024.
