Clinical Highlights in Dermatology

The Division of Dermatology is pleased to have several graduating residents from Ottawa joining the division staff in the upcoming years.  Many of the current dermatologists are nearing retirement and this has caused a shortage of available resources for patients in the past.  We hope to decrease wait times for patients in order to maximize the quality of care.

The Division is developing a world class dermatology centre at The Ottawa Hospital.  The first phase of this centre was to open the first Mohs surgery unit in Eastern Ontario for the treatment of complex non-melanoma skin cancers. The unit was opened in June 2009 and is headed by  Dr. Jillian Macdonald.
