The OHSU Department of Dermatology in Portland, Oregon is dedicated to providing our patients the best and most innovative care. Our dermatologists treat a broad range of skin, hair, nail and mucous membrane disorders.

Since the founding of the medical school in 1887, dermatology has been a part of the curriculum. In 1922, dermatology was formally recognized and by 1929 Lyle B. Kingery, M.D., took on the leadership of the division. From that time to now, the contributions of the department to the Pacific Northwest and to dermatology overall have been extensive. Our esteemed faculty and staff provide exceptional care to patients in the Pacific Northwest and beyond and have contributed important advances to the understanding and treatment of many dermatologic diseases. Our hope is that our work makes a difference in your life.

In addition, our highly successful dermatology training program has trained nearly 200 dermatologists and is currently training many residents, fellows and students. Patient interaction with them is an important part of their education.
