Our department is home to more than 30 physicians providing the latest in patient care, nearly 20 of whom practice through University of Minnesota Physicians - the University of Minnesota Medical School’s clinical practice made up of more than 800 University doctors.

In addition to the University of Minnesota Medical Center (UMMC) and the University of Minnesota Physicians Dermatology Clinic, our faculty practice at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center, Hennepin County Medical Center and Park Nicollet Medical Center. As a result, our residents and fellows have a tremendous opportunity to gain clinical experience in a variety of settings.

Within our Clinical Research Division our faculty conducts the latest cutting edge research designed to combat conditions like lymphoma, melanoma, psoriasis and dermatitis. This research will lead to new treatment options, better drugs and revolutionary medical technology.
