We want every single person who joins The Dermatology Specialists to grow during their time with us. You’re not just here to do a job, you’re here to advance your skills, gain confidence, and add to your already impressive abilities.

Our training and development program, known as ‘The Skin Academy’, is truly one of a kind when it comes to dermatology groups.

It doesn’t matter what stage of training you’re at; whether looking to gain experience as a Medical Assistant/Office Manager, or a board-certified dermatologist wanting to enhance your skills in a specific cosmetic procedure that is new to you, The Skin Academy has you covered.

Our commitment to training is so profound, we’ve dedicated an entire floor of our Long Island City location to it. This modern training center features a classroom, a mock front desk, a Medical Assistant lab and an exam room. This immersive environment allows our trainees to experience hands-on practice and simulations, fostering a deeper understanding of their roles.

Our PA / NP Fellowship Program offers more than 800 hours of concentrated training under the direct supervision of our Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Sourab Choudhury, who has decades of clinical and teaching experience. This comprehensive program nurtures fellows, equipping them with the necessary skills and expertise to confidently deliver world class dermatological care. If you’re looking for a career in dermatology, you should work somewhere that truly invests in your training and professional growth. There’s nowhere better to be than The Dermatology Specialists.

We are thrilled to announce an impending collaboration with New York Medical College, which builds on our existing association with St. John’s. These partnerships demonstrate our unwavering commitment to academic excellence, providing medical professionals an opportunity to specialize in dermatology through an all-inclusive residency program.
At The Dermatology Specialists, the pursuit of knowledge doesn’t cease once you’ve established yourself at our practice. We are dedicated to ensuring our providers remain at the cutting edge of dermatological advancements. Continuous training sessions keep our team up-to-date on a wide spectrum of topics including laser procedures, neurotoxins, fillers, and beyond. Additionally, we present regular journal club discussions and Continuing Medical Education (CME) opportunities to fuel our providers’ intellectual growth. At these events, we bring in local thought leaders from Dermatology and other related specialties e.g. Pediatrics, Rheumatology, Allergy & Immunology, to make sure our provider’s stay abreast of the latest evidence-based treatments our patients might benefit from.
Recognizing that excellent patient care requires a complete team effort, The Skin Academy also emphasizes Comprehensive Staff Training. Tailored programs for each role within our organization ensure that everyone, from our Medical Assistants to our receptionists and managers, are equipped with the necessary skills to excel. Our training spans from two weeks for Medical Assistants and receptionists, extending to a four-week program for managers, bolstering their leadership abilities.
