The faculty and staff at the University of Missouri School of Medicine's Department of Dermatology are dedicated to providing high quality dermatological care for our patients, exceptional educational experiences for our residents, fellows and students, a stimulating, engaging, and collegial work environment and the ongoing pursuit of new knowledge and scholarship.

We provide dermatology care for patients at five locations in University of Missouri Health Care Hospitals and Clinics and we care for our veterans at the Harry S. Truman Memorial Veterans' Hospital. We also have been conducting teledermatology clinics in rural, underserved areas of Missouri for more than 20 years.

We have beautiful facilities, a strong and diverse faculty and staff, and a comprehensive dermatopathology service. The future is bright for Mizzou Dermatology!
