About the Department

On July 1, 2009, the Duke University School of Medicine created the Department of Dermatology, the first new clinical department created at Duke since 1991. This marked the culmination of more than five years of work by many people within Duke University, the School of Medicine, and the Health System.
This process was truly a university experience, and it has illustrated, once again, to all the faculty of our new department the wonderful depth and breadth of talent and ambition at Duke University and the medical school. The true history of this event, however, dates back much further than five years ago; indeed, it dates back to the very first days of Duke University. Read more
