About the Department of Dermatology

The Department of Dermatology is committed to excellence in patient care, education and furthering the understanding of skin and skin diseases through clinical and basic research. Our students and residents learn from distinguished faculty members in the Department of Dermatology who are also practicing physicians and researchers.

We treat a wide range of skins conditions — both common and rare. Our physicians use the most advanced technologies and approaches, including Mohs surgery and extracorporeal photopheresis. Because the Department of Dermatology is based at a top-tier academic medical center, we treat patients with diverse clinical histories and socioeconomic backgrounds. This gives our students and residents ample learning opportunities.

Many of our faculty are also involved in important research aimed at understanding the mechanisms of skin diseases and how to treat them.
