Clinical Dermatology

The IU Department of Dermatology staff physicians
carry out residency training at four hospitals.


Indiana University Hospital & James Whitcomb Riley Hospital for Children

Patients are seen in the outpatient building in a dermatology dedicated suite. These patients are private patients of the full-time faculty. Residents and/or medical students assist in the general dermatology clinics, hair clinic, melanoma clinic and lymophoma clinic, as well as one resident in the dermatologic surgery clinic.

There are three pediatric dermatology clinics per week involving one or two pediatric residents and one dermatology resident for each session. One additional pediatric clinic per week occurs at a  satellite clinic.

In-patient consultations are seen with the faculty on a daily basis.

Multidisciplinary Vascular Lesion Clinic (VLC)

We are fortunate to offer multidisciplinary care for patients with vascular malformations and tumors. Six to Eight patients are seen per session. Each patient is seen by pediatric dermatology, plastic surgery, otolaryngology, interventional radiology, and hematology / oncology. We offer state-of-the art treatment and in-depth discussion of management for complicated vascular lesions.



Eskenazi Outpatient Care Center

The Eskenazi Outpatient Care Center has a large Dermatology Clinic and operates four days per week. Clinics are supervised by Indiana University Dermatology faculty member or by a local private practice dermatologist. Services available include full medical dermatology diagnosis and treatment; bedside fungal, viral and scabies preparations; ultraviolet light therapy; skin biopsies; and minor benign and skin cancer surgical procedures. Within the weekly clinic schedule, one half day session is dedicated to performing needed surgical procedures. On average, this clinic services between 8,000-9,000 patient-visits per year.

In-patient consultations are either seen in the clinic or on the inpatient wards on a daily basis.


Richard Roudebush Veterans Administration Medical Center

The dermatology clinic is administered under the Ambulatory Care Department. There are four regular clinic sessions per week. At each clinic session, there are two dermatology residents and two-three additional housestaff or students. One minor surgery clinic is held weekly attended by one dermatology resident and a faculty physician. There is a large volume of skin cancers at the VA Medical Center, providing significant dermatologic surgery experience for our residents. This location treats approximately 12,000 visits per year.
