Abstract

The fields of dermatology and psychiatry have overlap in the patient populations and diseases they treat. However, there are not currently fellowship opportunities for dermatologists or psychiatrists specifically interested in gaining expertise in psychodermatology. We discuss the logistics of a one-year psychodermatology fellowship, open to residents after completing either dermatology or psychiatry residencies, and the potential benefits that it could bring to both dermatology and psychiatry training programs across the county.
