Pre-Medical Interns

We are looking forward to beginning our fifth year of our Gap Year Pre-Med Internship at Pennsylvania Dermatology Group. The internship was created for senior students graduating from regional Universities who were either not accepted into medical school or who decided to delay application to medical school for one year following graduation in order to gain clinical experience.

The students work side-by-side on a daily basis with our practice physicians where they are involved in numerous clinical tasks, including:
taking patient histories; documenting in the medical record; explaining and assisting with treatments and surgical procedures; collecting and preparing biopsy and lab specimens; educating patients regarding diagnoses, treatment options, prescription medications and procedures, and more!

Amongst the goals of the internship is to provide an opportunity for students to further confirm their career path in medicine, develop the clinical skills with patients that are integral to the successful physician and experience teamwork and communication skills vital to providing medical care, all while adding an experience we believe will make them that much more attractive a candidate for medical school admission.

Medical schools where our interns have been accepted include Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, SUNY Upstate Medical University, Ichan School of Medicine at Mt. Sinai, The Commonwealth Medical College, Georgetown University, Rush Medical College, University of Massachusetts and Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine.
