Specific responsibilities for this critical position will include:

  • Plan and coordinate the scholarly activities of our new, ACGME-certified Residency in Dermatology
  • Collaborate with Dermatology, Pediatrics, Plastic Surgery, and Oncology faculty to produce scholarly works that further the St. Luke’s Dermatology brand
  • Design studies, participate in clinical trials, and perform data analysis (with the help of a dedicated statistician and fully supportive research institute) with particular focus on addressing practical, unanswered questions in Dermatology
  • Lead future generations of dermatologists in their approach to rigorous scientific investigations that significantly impact the specialty of Dermatology

In joining St. Luke’s University Health Network you will enjoy:

  • Team-based care with well-educated, dedicated support staff

  • Cutting-edge equipment and brand new facilities
  • A culture in which innovation is highly valued
