For years, people with skin diseases have turned to Johns Hopkins physicians for help. Recognized widely, Dermatologists at Hopkins provide high quality care, ensuring that patients receive the most advanced treatments available. Integrating diagnostic and therapeutic services, the Department offers comprehensive services to patients.
The Department of Dermatology continues to emphasize patient care, and also aims to do world-class research, developing innovative methods and treatments. Stem cells for wound healing, special laser application, and autoimmunity are just some of the research foci of the faculty members.
Training new leaders is a priority in the Department, and a number of education programs are offered to medical students, residents, and fellows.
