2017-18 Bridge Year Opportunity: Dermatology Clinical Assistant

I am a dermatologist in private practice inCharlottesville. My office is located on Pantops and I work with two other dermatologists in a very busy clinical dermatology practice. This will be our sixth year running this annual bridge year program. We have had great success working with recent UVA graduates and teaching them valuable hands on medical skills.

We wish to hire a student who is considering a bridge year prior to enrollment in medical school or physician's assistant school. We are in need of a dermatology clinical assistant/scribe who would: 

  • Bring patients back from the waiting room
  • Take an initial history of the medical problems to be discussed
  • Generate prescriptions to be sent electronically
  • Help with surgical procedures
  • Provide medical education regarding dermatological conditions and treatment 
This individual does not have to have any dermatology or surgical knowledge at all. We will teach all that is needed. This is a paid position.

This position will qualify as excellent experience for a medical school/PA school application.  After working with us for a year, the individual would be comfortable seeing live patients, taking succinct medical histories, assisting with surgical procedures, interfacing with electronic medical records, and well versed in dermatological diseases and treatments.

We will be making our decision in the coming months. Interested applicants should submit a resume, current GPA, and MCAT scores (if taken) to my email address as soon as possible:
