Dermatology

Introduction

The main goal of the Medical-Surgical Dermatology Department is to offer high-quality, effective specialist care in all medical and surgical areas relating to the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of skin disorders in adult patients at the University Hospital of Bellvitge and its areas of influence.

The Dermatology Department serves as a level-3 reference centre and its organisation is based on specialised units, offices and specialist consultations. The HUB Dermatology Department also covers level-1 dermatological care at CAU J. Oliveres and CAU Ramona, with a population of reference of almost 200,000 people.

Our mission includes the promoting of graduate and post-graduate education, clinical and translational research and innovation in the main areas of dermatology today, especially in our consolidated lines, such as malignant melanoma, cutaneous lymphoma and psoriasis.
