About

Adewole (Ade) Adamson is a board-certified dermatologist and assistant professor in the Department of Internal Medicine. His primary clinical interest is in caring for patients at high risk for melanoma of the skin, such as those with many moles (particularly atypical moles) or a personal and/or family history of melanoma.

Adamson’s research involves understanding patterns of health care utilization including overuse and underuse in dermatology. He is interested in how effectively and efficiently the health care system delivers care to patients with skin cancer, the most common type of cancer in the United States. He is passionate about health care disparities, access to specialty health care and health care costs. He speaks nationally about health care quality, value and the application of evidence-based medicine within dermatology.

Adamson is a proud graduate of Morehouse College where he received a Bachelor of Science in biology and French. He later earned a medical degree with honors at Harvard Medical School as part of the health sciences and technology program with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. While in medical school he spent a year conducting basic science research in immunology at the National Institutes of Health and later earned a Master in Public Policy at Harvard Kennedy School as a Zuckerman fellow in the Center for Public Leadership.

He completed his internship in internal medicine at The Mount Sinai Hospital followed by residency training in dermatology at the University of Texas Southwestern in Dallas where he was recognized with awards for his professionalism, leadership and community service work.
