Micrographic Mohs surgery (MSS) Fellowship

Skin cancer is cancer of the skin! Therefore, dermatologists should be in the lead of the care of (most) skin cancer patients, which requires well developed surgical skills including MMS.  The preferred treatment of high risk and/or recurrent BCCs is MMS.

In contrast to the US and Australia, the availability of MMS in Europe is very limited. We want to expand the number of European Mohs surgeons and offer the best possible care for our skin cancer patients.  

 

The Erasmus MC (Rotterdam, The Netherlands) is among the largest MMS centers in Europe. We perform approximately 1750 MMS procedures annually and have a formal certified training program for MMS.

 

Professor Tamar Nijsten and his faculty are offering a 6 month EADV sponsored MMS fellowship to a highly motivated dermatologist.

 

Benefits

  • Full time 6 months certified training with top MMS surgeons from the department of dermatology Erasmus MC Rotterdam, The Netherlands. The start date will be discussed between the awardee and the Erasmus MC.
  • 15.000€ funding to cover travel and accommodation costs

 

Selection Criteria:

  • EADV Specialist Members
  • Sufficient  knowledge and skills in surgery
  • The awardee will have the possibility to put MMS into practice after finishing the fellowship either by opening a Moh’s unit or by contributing to an existing unit.  in a (academic) hospital based department of dermatology within Europe.
