Program Criteria

1.         Open to current residents at accredited dermatology residency programs in the following states: Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island,  and Vermont

2.         Due to the impact of the COVID-19 Virus Pandemic, additional flexibility has  once again been added to the program. Accepted preceptorships can take place during the 2023-2024 or 2024-2025 academic years, if the resident's anticipated date of graduation allows. 

3.         Resident Proposals must include an educational project/activity and involve a precepted research, clinical or community service project under the 'live' or 'remote' guidance of an active NEDS faculty member NOT affiliated with the applicant's residency program.

However, applicants are requested to consider and briefly explain how they would conduct their project 100% virtually should that be required.
