Message from The Chair - Gary S. Wood, MD

Chairman, Gary Wood - MDWelcome to the Department of Dermatology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Medicine and Public Health. We are delighted to share with you the activities of our dynamic department!

We offer adult and pediatric clinical services at a number of outpatient locations in Madison as well as in the transplant and melanoma clinics located in the University hospital and the Pediatric Dermatology clinic at American Family Children’s Hospital. We care for veterans at the Middleton VA, UW students in the University Health Service, and consult on the care of hospitalized patients at UW and Meriter hospitals. We provide regional consultative services. Many of our faculty offer subspecialty care in Pediatric Dermatology, Mohs and dermatologic surgery, Psychocutaneous medicine and comprehensive dermatopathology services including immunoperoxidase and molecular diagnostics.

Our innovative research programs in both clinical and basic science address a variety of problems focusing on targets and agents for cancer chemoprevention and treatment, molecular mechanisms of cancer development, molecular diagnosis of skin diseases, clinical trials testing novel treatments and translational research investigating genetic correction of skin diseases.

Our educational programs reach a broad spectrum of learners including: practicing physicians in the local community and across the region; Procedural Dermatology fellows in our board certified training program; dermatology residents in two distinct ACGME accredited programs; and, medical students being introduced to dermatology. Post-doctoral trainees participate in our NIH T32 Training Grant.

Welcome to Dermatology! Please take a look around and do not hesitate to contact us.
