The Pediatric Dermatology Fellowship Training Program at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago/Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine (“Lurie Children’s”) is accepting applications from board-eligible or board-certified pediatricians for a one-year fellowship program in pediatric dermatology.

Training in pediatric dermatology typically requires board-certification or board-eligibility in dermatology. Given low numbers in the national pediatric dermatology fellowship application pool, we open our program vacancies, when available, to applicants who have completed pediatrics training (but not dermatology) and wish to gain more experience and competence in this exciting field. Although training will not qualify the pediatrician trainee for board certification in pediatric dermatology, this paid fellowship, called “Advanced Dermatology Primary Care Pediatrics”, is ideal for those who desire to be more competent in treating skin disorders, those who plan on practicing in rural settings where referral for specialty care may be challenging, or those who may be considering eventual formal application to dermatology residency programs. Salary will be commensurate with your postgraduate year of training. A generous medical and dental healthcare package is included, with an optional vision plan.

The pediatric dermatology fellowship training program at Lurie Children’s aims to train physicians in all aspects of the field, including clinical care, research, scholarly activity, teaching and administration. With exposure to our 8 nationally and internationally recognized faculty, a physician completing this program will be capable of providing superb outpatient care and inpatient consultative services for children of all ages with skin disorders. Fellows are also trained in pediatric dermatological surgery and pulsed dye laser therapy (at an appropriate pace for their prior training and experience), and the education of students, residents and primary health care providers.  For more information, please visit

If interested, please contact Anthony J. Mancini, MD, Division Head and Associate Program Director, at, or Pa Zao Lee, program coordinator, at


Do you have at least two years of pediatrics training and want to be immersed for a year or more in pediatric dermatology? We also offer three salaried positions yearly for clinical research fellows. The applicant will gain exposure to common and rare skin disorders in clinics, participate in didactics, and learn through hands-on cutting-edge research about new directions in therapy. This position is perfect for a future academics-based pediatrician or pediatric dermatologist. Northwestern University offers competitive salary and is an equal opportunity employer.
