Master of Science in Skin Biology and Dermatological Sciences : Hybrid Schedule

Hybrid Format

The Dr. Phillip Frost Department of Dermatology and Cutaneous Surgery has been at the forefront of dermatology education for decades. Another example is this hybrid degree program, with 60% of course credit on campus, and 40% online. This program has specifically been designed and developed to support the needs of working professionals. So our courses are designed to be taken via campus-based classroom classes and online classes (synchronous & asynchronous). Students are expected to attend on campus classes and participate in live, real-time interactive web-based sessions. All assignments will be turned in online. Online course materials include web-based presentations, readings, and activities. Course materials will be posted on the University of Miami course learning management system Blackboard (
