The Mohs Surgeons:
Fellowship trained Mohs surgeons are specialists in dermatology, pathology, and reconstructive surgery. The vast majority of Mohs surgeons are dermatologists. Dermatology is the only medical subspecialty requiring extensive training in dermatopathology, constituting a large portion of Board Certification testing. Skilled and experienced clinical observation of skin, as well as extensive microscopic training in dermatology residency provides an excellent foundation for Mohs fellowship training. The American College of Mohs Surgery currently recognizes more than 50 training centers where qualified applicants receive comprehensive training in Mohs micrographic surgery. The minimum training period is one year, during which the graduate dermatologist acquires extensive experience in all aspects of Mohs surgery, pathology, and reconstructive surgery. Drs. Boyer and Ellison have had experience with thousands of cases following their Mohs surgery training.
