Emory Dermatology

The skin is a complicated, living organ system which fulfills important functional and aesthetic roles. The skin is the envelope that not only covers our body, but it is also the structure that gives rise to our hair, our nails, and allows us to sense hot, cold, and pressure. Skin protects virtually all other organs, plays a key role in body temperature regulation, and is equipped with a myriad of early warning systems. No other organ is as visible to the world as your skin.

The medical practice of Dermatology involves the care and treatment for a remarkable range of skin problems. Disorders of the skin include not only life-threatening skin cancers and immune disorders, but also include profoundly uncomfortable skin conditions that may dramatically alter appearances with resultant effects on self confidence. Dermatologists are the specialists who are specifically trained to provide diagnoses and management of skin, hair, and nails in patients of all ages.

The Emory Department of Dermatology covers a broad scope of health care services for the skin and skin-related diseases. We provide these services with a unique perspective given our additional missions of skin biology and disease research, and education and training of future physicians and dermatologists. Our board-certified dermatologists are international leaders in Dermatology and skin biology research, and have more than 200 years of aggregate experience in clinical care, research, and teaching.

We are a Department of the Emory University School of Medicine, a globally recognized health institution that is renowned for innovative research and groundbreaking medical discoveries. Each of our physicians is a faculty member of Emory University, and each is extensively involved in educating medical students and resident physicians in all aspects of Dermatology. Clinical services by our departmental physicians are provided through the Dermatology Section of The Emory Clinic, Inc., a component of Emory Healthcare.
