The Mohs Micrographic Surgery and Cutaneous Oncology Fellowship Program is under the direction of Dr. Christopher Harmon, and 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 (outpatient plastic surgery, dermatopathology, and rural satellite surgery locations) to ensure a broad-based surgical experience.
Our surgeons perform over 10,000 surgeries 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 plastic surgery. The fellow assists on all aspects of patient care and becomes 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. Applicants must sign up through the San Francisco Match Program to be considered.
The applicant must complete an ACGME approved residency in Dermatology, and be either certified by or eligible for the American Board of Dermatology. If board eligible, the applicant must take the board at the first opportunity and obtain board certification.
Applicants must register and apply the San Francisco Matching Program to be considered. For more information, please visit SFMatch.org.
Qualifying candidates will be invited to interview in September, October, or early November. Invited candidates should plan to spend a full day in clinic/surgery with Dr. Harmon. The candidate will have the opportunity to observe surgery, see our facility and clinic operation, and meet with our staff.
