Patient Care

The Department of Dermatology & Cutaneous Biology provides students, residents and fellows with unique opportunities to learn while caring for a large patient population in Philadelphia, Delaware, and Southern New Jersey. Patients come from many diverse ethnic, social and economic backgrounds which expose residents to a broad spectrum of people, diseases and conditions.

Our faculty physicians offer comprehensive care in general medical dermatology as well as a wide range of specialty services performed at our various Thomas Jefferson University Hospital clinics, centers and institutes located in Center City Philadelphia and Wilmington, Delaware. In addition, our department works in collaboration with the Kimmel Cancer Center and the Autoimmune Disease Center.

We currently have offices in Center City Philadelphia and Wilmington, Delaware. Learn more about our Institutional Centers and Specialty Clinics:
