Dermatology Nurse Practitioner Fellowship

To help meet the needs of our patients, Lahey Hospital & Medical Center has developed a unique, intensive, full-time fellowship program in the specialty of dermatology for certified nurse practitioners.

Our objective is to provide, in a two-year course, a thorough, didactic and clinical curriculum that will prepare trainees to become valuable providers in any dermatology setting. Fellows will be exposed to various academic settings that will foster and expand their knowledge base.

This program is funded by Lahey Hospital & Medical Center, and fellows are hired as employees with full benefits. It is designed as a 40-hour-per week residency style training.

Lahey dermatologists practice in Burlington, Lexington, Lynnfield and Peabody, Mass. Some portion of the training will likely occur at each of these sites. All department physicians and nurse practitioners participate as preceptors in the program.
