Since 2001, the Department of Dermatology at The University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston has participated in a campus wide non-degree honors research program developed to enhance the research skills of non-dual degree (MD/PhD) medical students. From 2001 through 2006, thirteen students completed the dermatology research program, and earned research honors at graduation. Seven student manuscripts have been published or are in press at peer-review journals and ten of twelve program participants who have applied for dermatology residency positions have been successful at the time of writing.
