Medical Dermatology

Medical students, residents and scientists within the Department of Dermatology's medical dermatology specialty are focused on studying localized and systemic disorders involving the skin, hair, nails and mucous membranes. Our faculty members utilize and pioneer the latest available technology to teach future generations of dermatologists and treat patients at Feinberg's affiliated care sites, as well as develop better care through research.


Our faculty offer comprehensive dermatologic care for a wide variety of skin conditions. In addition to a robust general dermatology practice, we offer several subspecialty clinics. These clinics are focused on the expert care of patients with hair loss, cutaneous lymphoma, psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis, oncodermatology, allergic contact dermatitis, autoimmune blistering conditions, melanoma, non-infectious granulomatous conditions, connective tissue disorders and mucosal diseases. Additionally, physicians are involved in research and clinical trials, enabling them to provide cutting-edge, evidence-based care for patients. Our goal is always patients first. We achieve this by collaborating with all members of the care team and, most importantly, with the patient.”
