The mission of the Dermatology Interest Group (DIG) is to inspire interest and provider support for students interested in the field of dermatology among VTCSOM medical students through hands-on experience, physician-directed learning and mentorship.

We host educational seminars, encourage service learning, and provide networking opportunities to increase exposure within the field of dermatology by working with peers and faculty members.
