Our mission is to provide patients with the highest level of care, while also furthering the field of dermatology through outstanding clinical, translational, and basic science research. In addition, we are committed to providing students and residents with outstanding clinical training.

We have clinical practices at Temple University Hospital, Temple University Main Campus, Fox Chase Cancer Center, Fort Washington, and Center City.

The department is a leader in the diagnosis and treatment of psoriasis, hidradenitis suppurativa, pemphiqus, pemphigoid, eczema, contact dermatitis, urticaria (hives) and skin cancers.

The Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University offers six residency training positions with two residents accepted each year in dermatology. The program provides a diverse clinical experience with rotations at Temple University Hospital, Center City, Fort Washington, and Fox Chase Cancer Center.  Additional experience in cosmetic dermatology is gained at Main Line Center for Laser Surgery.
