The APDerm Gap Year Program

Have you considered a gap year internship as a medical assistant before heading off to medical school? This will give you an in-depth look into the field of dermatology and help you make informed decisions about your course of study.  

The APDerm Network of Practices consists of multiple brands that share a dedication to delivering exceptional outcomes. We do this by making comprehensive dermatology services available and accessible to all patients within their local communities.

We are always looking for enthusiastic interns to join the APDerm family and provide them with crucial hands-on experience. Because, as Benjamin Franklin said, ‘tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn’.

As a gap year intern, you will have the opportunity to:

  • Learn about general, surgical and cosmetic dermatology
  • Obtain valuable patient care skills that are transferrable to any speciality
  • Receive mentorship and insights from practicing dermatologists
  • Gain experience that will maximize your chances of getting into medical school
  • Receive medical school interview training
  • Collaborate with other gap year interns and expand your industry network

As a gap medical assistant, you can expect to:

  • Assist physicians, physician assistants, doctors, and nurse practitioners with office procedures such as biopsies, surgeries, and treatments for various skin conditions
  • Document (or scribe) for physicians, physician assistants, doctors, and nurse practitioners in the Electronic Medical Record (EMR)
  • Provide patient education and post-operative care instructions
  • Work as part of a team at the location of your appointment

Why choose APDerm? We offer competitive pay, paid time off (PTO), sick time, paid holidays, health, dental, and other voluntary benefits that are effective as of your date of hire!
