Abstract

Currently, only a minority of dermatologists participate in the primary hospital care of patients with severe skin disease. However, an opportunity exists to alter this course. We believe the current course is a detriment to our specialty, and as a specialists we should provide the care for the full spectrum of dermatologic diseases. Moreover, by not delivering complete dermatology care, our specialty also stands to lose respect from both our patients and peers. Our experience at UM suggests that the creation of a cadre of dermatology hospitalists at selected academic medical centers would allow improved patient hospital care, education, and research.
