Welcome to the Residency Training Program in Dermatology at the Kaiser Permanente Los Angeles Medical Center.

The missions/goals of this program are to develop clinical, technical, professional skills necessary to provide the best possible care for patients as specialists in Dermatology.

Principles of diagnosis and treatment are taught progressively throughout the 3 years of training.
