Why are you in academic dermatology?  "I'm in academics for three reasons.  The most important is that I'm dedicated to teaching residents how to think logically about dermatologic disease and therapy and to helping them become outstanding physicians.  Second is having the chance to work on widely varying projects, from operations of the clinical practice, to designing residency curricula, to developing administrative policies.  Finally, I love the pure intellectual challenge of having to know enough about dermatology to be able to care for the patients with the most interesting, challenging diseases in all of medicine."

What do you think is the best thing about OSU dermatology?  "I love Ohio State because the division of dermatology, and the institution in general, recognizes the importance and value of teaching residents and caring for challenging patients.  This creates an environment in which what is best for patients and residents, not financial issues, are the major factors in deciding how to run our practice and the residency."
