Paediatric Dermatology Program

The mandate of the Paediatric Dermatology Clinic is to provide consultations for paediatric skin conditions of concern to a physician or health-care professional where past treatment has proven unsuccessful or where additional investigation is needed in order to provide treatment and/or diagnosis. 

Currently, clinical work consists of over 7000 visits a year with at least two clinics running daily and a busy in-patient consultation service. The dermatology team includes three permanent staff members (Drs. Elena Pope, Irene Lara-Corrales and Miriam Weinstein) and four part-time physicians with one to two clinics per week (Drs. Saul Greenberg, Nhung Ho, Marissa Joseph and Perla Lansang). Several multi-disciplinary clinics have been established, including a specialized morphea clinic, epidermolysis bullosa clinic, genodermatosis clinic, cutaneous T-cell lymphoma clinic, cafe-au-lait screening clinic and a vascular tumor clinic (VAST).  Laser clinics have recently been added to the services offered in Dermatology .  The Dermatology Team is involved in multiple clinical research studies, primarily in the above areas of clinical expertise.

Teaching continues to be an integral part of the program with dermatology residents completing their core rotations on a monthly, six-month or six week basis depending on their level of training.  In addition, all paediatric residents rotate though the Dermatology Clinic in their first and third year of training. An internationally renowned fellowship program has been created that attracts trainees from all over the world. Currently, four to six fellows per year are completing their specialized fellowship in Paediatric Dermatology. The Dermatology Group is actively involved in teaching locally, nationally and internationally. The Paediatric Dermatology Update, an event initiated in 2004 and held every two years, attracts family doctors, paediatricians and dermatologists provincially and internationally.
