Updated Note: we have already selected our fellows for the University of Toronto Mohs Fellowship for the years 2017 (july)-2018 (june). The next available position will be starting July 1, 2018. 

Who, what, where?                                                                 Link to General Information about U of T Dermatology Fellowships
 
The University of Toronto program is an official one year fellowship accredited by the American College of Mohs Surgeons (ACMS, http://www.mohscollege.org/acms/). It follows all the rules and regulations outlined by the ACMS fellowship guidelines (http://www.mohscollege.org/sisrb/) and also falls within the rules of University of Toronto post-graduate training. Here is a link to our clinic (Mohs Clinic link) which has general information on our practice and team. We are academic Dermatologists and Mohs Surgeons who work at Women's College Hospital within the University of Toronto. 

Although there is no firm deadline outside of the SFmatch timeline, we generally review all material for the last time about a month before the SFmatch rank list is due. 

When and how do people become fellows?
 
We are part of the SF match for Mohs Surgery (www.sfmatch.org), and therefore you must enroll in the SF match to be considered for our fellowship. Registration with the SFmatch for candidates begins in May, interviews are conducted in the Fall (although not all candidates who we will rank will need to be interviewed), and the match occurs in December for training beginning the following year at the beginning of July. Often our interviews are by video-call, if people cannot come in person. Our training program is one year, July 1st to June 30th.
Typically candidates send us their CV and a list of references and then we decide if an elective or more information is required. 
Often the CV and a list of references (just the names and contacts of people who are Mohs surgeons that support your candidacy, not a full reference letter) is all we will need initially.

Who can apply?
  • You have completed a full dermatology residency by the time of the fellowship
  • International candidates are welcome
  • Standardized tests like the USMLE are not required

What is our fellowship like?
 
We have 3 Mohs surgeons (Mohs clinic link), and we do Mohs 5 days a week. We complete about 3000-3500 cases per year as a program. One of our Mohs Surgeons has a significant research component to his career, and another has a large non-invasive cosmetic practice. We work closely with an Oculoplastic Surgeon, Plastic Surgeons, Head and Neck Facial Plastic Surgeons and Dermatopathologists. We expect the fellow will attend clinics with each of these colleagues, and others such as Radiation Oncology and General Dermatology, to advance their knowledge and skills in these areas. We also expect the fellow to complete a fellowship research project, as per the ACMS guidelines.

Our fellows are funded, either by their own supporting systems (self-funded from a government or University), or funded by us. The typical funding would be about $60, 000 Cdn per year but will vary, depending on several factors.
