The instructional and research activities of this department focus on the skin as a distinct organ of the body. Specific diagnostic procedures developed in recent years such as immunopathology, and various modalities of treatment such as PUVA, UVA, Narrow band UVB, lasers and Mohs micrographic surgery, are taught in the department.

A comprehensive clinical dermatology elective is offered to third and fourth year medical students. A research elective is also available to qualified students, offering both basic and clinical research in the fields of immunobiology, molecular biology, ultrastructural analysis, photobiology and dermatopathology. The laboratory of molecular dermatology specializes in the molecular biology of malignant melanoma. The department offers a three-year, fully accredited residency training program to candidates at the second postgraduate year level.
