The Division of Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery in the Department of Internal Medicine aims to be a national leader in the clinical practice of dermatology by providing exceptional patient care and patient service while also advancing the future of the specialty through a profound commitment to education and research.
Division faculty are leaders in the field who deliver lectures nationally and internationally, publish in top peer-reviewed journals and are thought leaders on social media and in the press.
The program works to enhance the dermatologic care of residents of Central Texas and beyond through improved access to care, cutting-edge medical and surgical treatments, a robust ongoing research program and education for the surrounding medical community.
Division faculty deliver world-class care in medical dermatology, surgical dermatology, pediatric dermatology, dermatopathology and laser and cosmetic dermatology. Faculty members and residents provide dermatologic care to the local community at several different sites.
Faculty and residents partner with Ascension Seton to extend expertise in the full spectrum of dermatologic care — from pediatric and adult general dermatology to Mohs micrographic surgery, cutaneous oncology and laser and cosmetic dermatology — across Central Texas. In addition, faculty lead multidisciplinary and subspecialty clinics focused on the management of pigmentary disorders, cutaneous lymphoma, melanoma and high-risk skin cancers, transplant dermatology, evidence-based aesthetic dermatology, pediatric vascular anomalies and other genetic skin conditions.
Faculty and resident physicians provide comprehensive medical and surgical dermatology services at the Austin Outpatient Clinic of the Central Texas Veterans Health Care System.
Faculty and resident physicians provide dermatologic care at the North Central Health Center and Southeast Health and Wellness Center, both of which are CommUnityCare Health Centers. Division faculty incorporate novel technology and innovative workflows to meet the dermatologic needs of the Central Texas community.
