Pigmented Lesion Center Launched
We launched the new Pigmented Lesion Center, which is comprised of an intra-disciplinary group of physicians from Dermatology, Pediatric General Surgery, Pediatric Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and Pediatric Oncology. All specialize in the evaluation and treatment of congenital melanocytic nevi (moles), atypical melanocytic tumors, and melanoma.
In Room Registration Begins
We have implemented a new in- room registration process which allows patients to be taken directly back to their exam room and be registered. Our new in-room process has greatly improved the flow in clinic and has eliminated excessive waiting room time.
First Fellow Recruited to New Program
We implemented our pediatric dermatology fellowship program and are training our first fellow this year. The one-year fellowship, approved by the American Board of Dermatology, aims to train physicians in all aspects of pediatric dermatology, including clinical care, research, scholarly activity, resident and medical student education, and administration and office management.
A graduate of this program will be capable of providing specialized outpatient care and inpatient consultative services for children with skin disorders.
