60th Anniversary

60th Anniversary

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

The Department of Dermatology & Cutaneous Surgery is celebrating its 60th year of excellence! Dr. Harvey Blank founded the Department in 1956. Over the past 60 years we have become one of the most respected and dynamic programs in the country and take great pride in fulfilling our educational, research, clinical, and community service missions with excellence.

Scheduled for January 14th-17th, 2016, we invite you to celebrate our department, as well as look to the future during this celebratory educational meeting. This will be a wonderful time to reconnect with old friends, celebrate Miami and our Department, and enjoy a terrific dermatology program. This program features many of our distinguished graduates, past and present faculty and fellows, and special friends. We are particularly excited about the Dr. Lawrence A. Schachner Pediatric Dermatology Festschrift to be held on Saturday, January 16th.

We are excited to celebrate 60 years of incredible history with you. Please send any pictures, anecdotes, additions, or corrections to UMDerm60@med.miami.edu.

I look forward to celebrating with each and every one of you in January!
