Strong Memorial Hospital
The University of Rochester Medical Center's Dermatology Residency Program is based at Strong Memorial Hospital—an 830-bed, Level I trauma center that serves as URMC's main teaching hospital. The hospital is a tertiary and quaternary care referral center for Upstate New York. It is accredited by The Joint Commission and has been consistently named one of America's best hospitals by U.S. News & World Report. Our Dermatology physicians and residents treat patients in modern inpatient and outpatient facilities. More than 13,000 dermatology outpatients are seen annually at Strong Memorial.
The Dermatology outpatient facility is located in the hospital's ambulatory care center, which opened in 1996. There are seven examination rooms, five state-of-the-art surgical procedure rooms, and a clinical trials unit. One of our two Mohs practices is based out of this facility as well. Residents have their own offices—with dedicated computers—and a study area at the outpatient facility, where most of their time is spent. An electronic medical records system is used. The department also has a conference room that includes a dermatology library.
