General Dermatologist

Cleveland, OH
Aug 23, 2016
Position Type

The Dermatology and Plastic Surgery Institute is currently recruiting BC/BE General Dermatologists to meet the needs of our expanding programs within the Cleveland Clinic Health System.

The first is a “community clinical dermatologist” track.  Our community clinical dermatologists practice in one of our many, state-of-the-art Family Health Centers (FHCs) located throughout the greater Cleveland area.  These individuals have dynamic dermatology practices that include clinical dermatology, surgical excisions and incisional biopsies, oversight of phototherapy, and the opportunity for performing laser procedures depending on qualification and experience.  Our community clinical dermatologists see patients presenting with the full spectrum of dermatologic problems and develop strong relationships with patients from the local community.  They have access to an exceptionally strong physician referral network that includes other specialists at each FHC and dermatologists at the Main campus who specialize in complex dermatologic diseases.  Highly qualified candidates should be committed to excellence in patient care and possess strong clinical skills.


The second is an “academic clinical dermatologist” track.  Our academic clinical dermatologists practice at the Main campus, which provides care to the local community and additionally serves as an international tertiary care referral center.  Although these physicians also see the full spectrum of dermatologic disease, there is an abundant and exciting array of patients with complex dermatologic diseases who are either referred directly from outside physicians or indirectly from other CCF physicians who will be evaluated and treated.  Such individuals tend to focus on medical dermatology, and often a medical dermatology subspecialty, but incorporating some surgical dermatology is an option.  In addition to practicing clinical dermatology, our academic clinical dermatologists actively participate in resident education, our hospital inpatient consultation rotation, lecturing at local, national and international conferences, and research that is protected with access to state-of the-art resources. Such individuals should have a strong desire to advance both their reputation and the department’s reputation as world leaders in dermatology. 

These dynamic opportunities command an extremely competitive salary enhanced by an attractive benefits package and a collegial work environment.
