Message from the Department Chair

Welcome to the Department of Dermatology at the University of Florida.

The Department of Dermatology strives to become the leading dermatology institution worldwide. Our faculty will achieve this goal by performing unparalleled dermatology and dermatopathology services for patients and referring physicians in our new leading-edge 25,000 sq. ft. medical facility in Gainesville and in our new Emerson Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida. We also focus on educating and training dermatology residents, fellows, and medical students and, in turn, molding them into world-class dermatology practitioners. Other departmental activities include:

  • Offering Mohs and dermatopathology fellowship programs;
  • Administrating numerous dermatology research programs;
  • Supporting our community partners by providing clinical dermatology services and screenings.

Our expertise is cultivated from a diverse and experienced faculty with comprehensive knowledge in the fields of dermatology and dermatopathology, making the UF Department of Dermatology one of the most advanced academic dermatology institutions in the world. Because of this, our specialty clinics deliver the highest quality of care to patients with skin disorders by applying the latest advancements in the diagnosis, prognosis and treatment of skin diseases in a patient-friendly and compassionate atmosphere.

We recognize that our future success largely depends on the support of our faculty and colleagues, as well as UF residents, fellows and alumni.

Thank you for choosing the UF Department of Dermatology to fulfill your dermatologic medicine needs. We look forward to your continued patronage, as we diagnose and treat patients, educate the next generation of dermatology students, and work toward advancing our specialty.
