Welcome to the Department of Dermatology

Welcome to the Department of Dermatology at the George Washington University. The department is dedicated to excellence in patient care, education, and clinical research. We also believe community education and outreach is an important part of our mission as dermatologists. Our current areas of research include atopic dermatitis, supportive oncodermatology, nanotechnology, nonmelanoma skin cancer, and medical cannabinoids to name a few.
