Program Description

Welcome to the San Antonio Uniformed Services Health Education Consortium Dermatology Residency Program! We are committed to producing competent, compassionate and mission ready dermatologists for today’s changing world.

The SAUSHEC Dermatology Residency Program is a combined, U.S. Army and U.S. Air Force, 3-year training platform at Wilford Hall Ambulatory Surgical Center in San Antonio, Texas. We are accredited through the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education for up to 21 residents, typically 12 Army and nine Air Force, with 10-12 faculty, many of whom are subspecialists. The residency program provides full-spectrum medical, surgical, laser, and cosmetic dermatology care for all ages. Residents rotate through all subspecialities including Dermatopathology, Mohs Micrographic Surgery, Pediatric Dermatology, Laser/Cosmetic/Procedural Dermatology, Phototherapy, and Patch Testing. Our program maintains strong partnerships with valuable outside rotations to Audie Murphy Veterans Hospital, the Texas Dermatology and Laser Specialists clinics, the University of Texas Health Science Center, Brooke Army Medical Center and the University of Texas Southwest in Dallas, Texas.

SAUSHEC Dermatology residents experience military-specific dermatology care through working directly with active duty service members and retirees, including Wounded Warriors and Basic Military Trainees in addition to allied nation soldiers and dependents through the Defense Language Institute, which in turn, provides a well-rounded and comprehensive training program, providing the ideal combination of military and civilian training.
