Mohs College - Training in Mohs Surgery
The American College of Mohs Micrographic Surgery and Cutaneous Oncology, or Mohs College for short was founded in 1967. It was named after Frederic E. Mohs, M.D., who developed the procedure, which bears his name and served as the first president of the College.
The Mohs College approves formal fellowship training programs in Mohs micrographic surgery. Mohs College Surgeons receive the most rigorous training available in the performance of the Mohs procedure, interpretation of Mohs pathology slides, and cosmetic reconstruction of surgical defects.
All dermatologists receive training in Mohs surgery during their residency but only few go on to become Mohs College Surgeons. Presently, Dr. Richardson is the only Mohs College surgeon practicing in the Coachella Valley.
Focus on Skin Cancer
At Mirage Dermatology we limit our practice to the diagnosis and treatment of skin cancer. Focusing on one specific area gives us much more experience, and thus more skill, in that area. It also allows us to streamline our office routines and staff training which in turn promotes a higher and more efficient level of care. We believe that specialization, office accreditation, and superior training allow us to offer the best possible care and help us achieve our mission of providing Excellence in Skin Cancer Care.
