About Our Work

UNC’s Department of Dermatology is an academic referral center with experience in managing the most complicated cases. We are often the last resource for patients who have conditions that are challenging to diagnose and treat. We are the institution that prepares the physicians for the future. Our department has been training outstanding dermatologists for over 50 years. By making a donation to UNC Dermatology, you help to ensure that we can provide a high level of patient care; recruit the best dermatologists and retain our most talented faculty; sustain our research programs; provide our patients with the latest proven innovations in dermatologic care; and continue to train residents and fellows to become caring, talented, and skilled dermatologists.
