Division Spotlight: Dermatology

By July 28, 2023No Comments

The Division of Dermatology was established in 1961 by Dr. James Case. After Dr. Case’s untimely death, Dr. George Odland led the division for 26 years. Odland’s passion for innovation and research helped the division become a nationally recognized leader for its contributions to skin biology research.

For more than six decades, the division has flourished by expanding patient access into additional clinics, hospitals and regions (through the use of telemedicine), introducing new research programs, forming strong collaborative partnerships with universities and research entities across the world, and offering a variety of educational opportunities including residencies, fellowships, research projects and scholarships for dermatology trainees and medical students.
