About Dermatology

Mission and Goals

Our goal is to provide world-class care to every patient while training medical students and resident physicians to extend the reach of our department throughout the state of Mississippi and the nation. We are equally committed to the medical students and residents of the University of Mississippi who will often be learning and assisting us during the provision of patient care. Finally, we are driven to advance the science of dermatology. To this end, our patients may be asked if they wish to participate in clinical trials and other studies.
