Message from the Department Chair

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



Abel Torres, M.D.

Our focus is on excellent patient care for patients with all forms of skin disease. This excellent care provides the backbone of our Dermatology Resident Education program and our research on skin disorders in patients young and old. Diseases of the skin range in acuity from not noticed to life threatening. It takes a keen intellectual curiosity, years of study and a compassionate mindset to master the art and science of caring for patients who literally wear their diseases. Our faculty has expertise in every sub-specialty of dermatology providing a rich diversity of experiences and opinions. This diversity in turn provides a wonderful educational structure for our adult learners.
