Mohs Micrographic Surgery and Cutaneous Oncology Fellowship Program

The Procedural Dermatology and Mohs Micrographic Surgery Fellowship, under the direction of Dr. Christopher Harmon offers an intense and broad-based training experience in the field of dermatologic surgery. The fellowship year includes training in the field of Mohs micrographic surgery, laser surgery, and cosmetic dermatologic surgery. The main surgical experience is at an outpatient dermatologic surgical center; however, there is also exposure to other practice settings (Callahan Eye Foundation Hospital, HealthSouth OutPatient Care Center) to ensure a broad-based surgical experience.

Dr. Harmon performs over 2000 cases per year. The majority of these are repaired in the office setting; however, there is a close interaction with other surgical subspecialties such as oculoplastics, ENT/Head and Neck Surgery, and plastics. Approximately 400 cases per year are performed in the day surgery unit at the Callahan Eye Foundation Hospital. The fellow assists on all aspects of patient care and becomes quite proficient at using the Mohs technique for even the largest and most complicated situations.

The Mohs Micrographic Surgery and Procedural Dermatology Fellowship Program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). We train a fellow each year July 1-June 30. www.sfmatch.org – San Francisco Matching Program (applicants must sign up through this matching program to be considered).
