Department of Dermatology

In sunny New Mexico, skin care is especially crucial. The University of New Mexico School of Medicine Department of Dermatology, located in Albuquerque, provides excellent education and collaborative research as well as a comprehensive residency program. Our practitioners offer the highest quality dermatologic care that is often unattainable elsewhere in the state. 

Our residents are trained to perform procedures such as:

  • Biopsies
  • Excisions
  • Lesion destructions (benign and malignant)
  • Phototherapy
  • Laser, teledermatology and aesthetic treatments

We provide care for patients of all ages throughout the state of New Mexico, and we aim to be the center of choice for New Mexicans with dermatologic issues, such as:

  • Atopic dermatitis
  • Psoriasis
  • Acne
  • Skin cancer surveillance
  • Pigmented lesions/melanoma 
  • Rare conditions such as autoimmune blistering disorders and genodermatoses

While we aim to fully understand the needs of our communities, we also work to make a difference by performing our duties with compassion and respect for our patients, learners and colleagues.
