Clinical Programs

The training program in dermatology includes both inpatient and outpatient exposure.

Inpatient Care

Dermatology consults on approximately 60 in-patients per year, the majority of which are patients with co-morbid skin disease admitted for another problem. Drug reactions, severe eczema exacerbations and complicated infantile hemangiomas are other dermatologic problems for which our patients can be hospitalized.

There are no dedicated dermatology beds, although there is the possibility to admit dermatology patients to dermatology on the clinical teaching units.

Outpatient Care: approximately 2,800 visits per year

Approximately 1,300 new patients and 1,500 returning patients are seen in general pediatric Dermatology outpatient clinics per year. We also participate in a multi-disciplinary vascular anomalies clinic with plastic surgery, ENT, radiology and surgery.
