Dermatologic Laser Surgery and Aesthetic Medicine Fellowship

What is our fellowship like?

This is a one-year clinical fellowship designed to help improve the fellow’s knowledge and skill in the area of non-invasive Dermatologic Laser Surgery and Aesthetic Medicine.

The fellowship is under the supervision of two experienced cosmetic dermatologists.  We expect the fellow to attend clinics with each supervisor, in both an academic hospital laser and cosmetic dermatology clinic setting and community private office setting.


Fellows are also encouraged to do elective clinics with other University of Toronto faculty to gain additional experience and the supervisors will help to facilitate this.


The objectives of the fellowship training program are:


1)    To acquire and demonstrate expert knowledge in laser surgery and various aesthetic dermatology procedures (for example hair transplantation, liposuction, aesthetic injection of neurotoxins, aesthetic injection of dermal fillers, chemical peeling, management of leg veins, cryosurgery and electrosurgery).

2)    To assess cosmetic dermatology patients and learn how to perform a focused patient history and physical examination relevant to the cosmetic patient, formulate a provisional management plan, and perform procedures under supervision.

3)    To gain expertise in laser surgery and aesthetic dermatology by doing research in the field.

4)    To present the findings of research at dermatology conferences, and to prepare drafts of manuscripts suitable for publication in peer-reviewed journals.

5)    To participate in formal rounds and seminars.

When and how to people become fellows?

Candidates must have completed a full dermatology residency by the time of fellowship. International candidates are welcome to apply. 

Our fellowship is not funded.  Applicants must secure their own external funding for the fellowship. Funding should be a minimum of $56, 000 for the year to ensure the fellow can support their needs while living in Toronto. 


Applications for the fellowship are accepted up until September 30 of the year prior to the fellowship starting.  We require the following documents: personal statement, curriculum vitae, and 3 letters of reference.  Candidates may be required to come to Toronto for an interview, which is in the form of a brief elective experience with both supervisors.  These are conducted in the fall.  Preference is given to individuals who have done an elective or spent time in the University of Toronto Dermatology program.  Offers for the fellowship position are usually made by January 1st. The fellowship is usually one year in length, starting on July 1st, and finishing on June 30th.
