Duke Skin of Color Fellowship
Department of Dermatology
Duke Medical Center
Duke University School of Medicine
Durham, NC


Overview: The skin of color fellowship is a 1-year paid position starting July 1st, 2022. The goal of the fellowship is to prepare the trainee with the knowledge and skills needed to perform rigorous, high-quality research and to provide focused clinical training in skin conditions predominant in skin of color (SOC) populations. The Hidradenitis Suppurativa research experience under the primary mentor, Dr. Tara Jaleel, will serve as a platform for the investigation of issues surrounding SOC, for the application of research techniques relevant to study health disparities, and to increase our understanding of, and to improve outcomes in SOC dermatological disease. The primary experience will also include both medical management of HS in the context of outpatient and telehealth visits, and procedural management of HS such as with laser and surgical treatments. In addition, the fellow will gain relevant clinical experience in specialty rotations in Duke Dermatology’s infectious disease, hair loss, cutaneous T-cell lymphoma, dermato-oncology and immunodermatology clinics.
