My experience at Mitchell Dermatology was very insightful! Between shadowing Clare and Nicole, I was able to see a great amount of various cases each patient came to the office with! As well as seeing these cases and listening to treatment plans, I was able to be of help in the process by initially getting the patients history and what was bringing them in that day. The excisions and biopsies were very intriguing and interesting to observe and assist alongside the PAs. On the cosmetic side, I was able to observe a laser hair removal and injection of Botox. This part of medicine has always been an interest of mine, so being able to see it firsthand was an amazing experience!

I had a wonderful experience at Mitchell Dermatology. I had the chance to work directly with patients throughout my time spent shadowing, including bringing back patients, giving the provider the patient’s history, and completing SOAP notes. These are a few of the useful abilities Dr. Mitchell imparted to me during my years of shadowing and interning. After I graduated from college, I formally began my internship at Mitchell Dermatology. I was really appreciative to have Dr. Mitchell as a mentor and the Mitchell Dermatology staff as a family to lean on. I learned a lot from everyone in the office, both in the medical field and in my personal life. I was granted the opportunity to stay for a second GAP Year. I started working with the other interns in a leadership role and was exposed to a variety of medical professionals including aestheticians, nurses, medical assistants, and physician assistants. I was very appreciative of this experience because it allowed me to learn more about each profession while interning and make the career decision that best suited me. I made the decision to become a physician assistant, and thanks to Dr. Mitchell and her staff, my dream and goal became a reality. I was accepted into one of the programs ranked in the top ten PA programs in the country. As a result of my internship experiences and working with my mentor, I gained the confidence needed to provide competent care through compassion and thoughtfulness.

MD EXPERIENCE: April - May 2023
My shadowing experience at Mitchell Dermatology allowed me to become more well-rounded in my knowledge regarding Dermatology. I was able to experience the diagnosis and treatment of several common skin lesions and cancers. I was also able to observe and assist in several forms of procedures such as shave and punch biopsies and excisions. Nicole Bergman, PA-C took the time to explain her thought process when diagnosing and choosing specific treatment plans for patient concerns which allowed me to understand her choices and I was able to see how much she cares for the patients by individualizing treatment for them! The staff at Mitchell Dermatology took the time to teach me the EMR system and answered questions I had, and if they were unable to, they went the extra mile to find someone who could! Overall, my shadowing experience was very educational and enjoyable.

With the support of the Edwards-Jenkins Scholarship, I had the opportunity to shadow Dr. Mitchell during my Spring Break. My experience was phenomenal! Dr. Mitchell and her staff were so welcoming and provided me the opportunity to have an amazing hands-on experience. I observed punch biopsies, botox, total body skin exams, artificial intelligence hair growth measurement, and much more. I was even able to learn to conduct full body skin exams, take dermatology based history, and present patients. I am immensely grateful for this experience. As a young woman from Baltimore, Maryland I recognize the need for Black Dermatologists and I aspire to follow in the footsteps of Dr. Mitchell.

Casey Clark - MD Student of Mitchell Dermatology

MD EXPERIENCE: January 2023
My experience at Mitchell Dermatology has been extremely rewarding, even over the course of the few days I was able to shadow. This opportunity allowed me to gain first-hand insight into the dermatology career, including patient interaction, workplace environment, and common conditions and treatments. I watched procedures, including an excision of cancerous skin cells, cyst removals, and biopsies. I was asked to give a report of patient information after welcoming them to the practice, including their reason for visiting, the location of their concerned area, and the duration of symptoms. This communication within this field was something I was unfamiliar with, and am excited to take forward with me through schooling and future jobs. I also got hands-on experience with setting up a surgery, filling syringes, and aiding in finishing a punch biopsy. In addition, Dr. Mitchell guided me in note taking so I could take the information that I was learning with me, easily accessible in the notebook I brought to the shadowing experience. Dr. Mitchell ensured that I gained as much experience and retained as much information as I could within the time that I shadowed both her and Nicole. I accomplished my short term goals of gaining insight into the dermatology field and solidifying my interest in becoming a dermatologist. I hope to take my experience shadowing at Mitchell Dermatology to apply to my long term goals, which will aid me in my journey through medical school and residency.

Nth Dimensions Summer Intern
Mitchell Dermatology has positively molded my view of medicine forever. Throughout my summer internship in Ohio I had the opportunity to observe the treatment of various skin conditions, play a hands-on role in the care of patients, and witness the importance of the patient-physician relationship. On top of this Dr. Mitchell provided a unique opportunity to learn more about skin of color and how conditions present differently on patients of color. The lessons I learned this summer are invaluable and I will carry them with me throughout my entire medical career. Working under Dr. Mitchell this summer was an honor and a once in a lifetime experience. I learned so much about both the business and medicinal side of dermatology. I am incredibly thankful for this experience and to have Dr. Mitchell as a mentor. You can tell she cares deeply about each mentee she takes on and pushes you to become the best version of yourself throughout the summer and beyond. Although I am sad the internship has come to a close, I know Dr. Mitchell will continue to provide advice and guidance on my path through medicine and I hope more students have the opportunity to work under her in the future.

My Shadow Student Experience is one that I will never forget! From day one, Dr. Mitchell made sure I felt like I was part of her amazing team. I was given the warmest welcome by everyone in the office. On the first day, I remember being so amazed at her presence in the office. I took note of her interactions with patients. Her explanations were always so thorough. Patients always spoke so highly of Dr. Mitchell. I had the privilege of meeting some of her patients that have been with her since she began practicing. I aspire to build the same type of rapport with my future patients. At times, Dr. Mitchell had more faith in me than I had in myself. Her ability to provide mentorship is unmatched. I feel honored that I was able to spend my summer with such an amazing woman. I truly wish I could spend 8 more weeks at Mitchell Dermatology.

I flew in from Washington, DC on my Spring Break to embark on the incredible journey of shadowing Dr. Hope Mitchell. My time shadowing was truly amazing. With the consent of her patients, I was able to see many dermatological procedures, like the removal of warts, Botox, chemical peels, hair loss injections, removal of skin cancer, full body skin exams, biopsies, and so much more. Her practice was filled with knowledgeable and caring staff that showed me how to prepare examination rooms, check in patients efficiently, and schedule appointments. Everyone at the Mitchell Dermatology practice was professional, did impeccable work, and put the needs of the patients’ first. Mitchell Dermatology is truly a one stop shop. I saw patients come in to pick up their skincare items and receive relaxing facials on the Spa side. I inspire to one day open a practice like Dr. Mitchell’s that serves the various needs of my community!

I had a great experience shadowing PAs Caitlin and Nicole at Mitchell Dermatology! I learned lots of new things related to skin disorders and diseases. My favorite thing that I saw was a minor surgery of a mole removal. It was interesting to see how many different types of cures there are for different skin disorders. I found it fascinating that Kenalog steroid is used to treat so many different problems, such as keloids. I will take all of the information I learned on with me in my future endeavors.
