Wake Forest Baptist Dermatology Program Ranked 13th in the U.S.

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – The Department of Dermatology at Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center ranks 13th in the country out of 107 programs based on results from a study by the Dermatology Online Journal.
The programs were ranked by five measures: publications in 2001 to 2004; NIH funding in 2004; Dermatology Foundation grants in 2001 to 2004; faculty lectures in 2004 delivered at national conferences; and the number of full-time faculty members who were on the editorial boards of the top three U.S. dermatology journals and the top four subspecialty journals.
“This is quite a compliment to our program,” said Alan B. Fleischer Jr., M.D., Professor and Chairman of Dermatology. “Our publication and presentation numbers compare very favorably with many of the larger programs in the top 20, in spite of our smaller faculty.”
The Dermatology Online Journal plans to continue rating dermatology programs on a regular basis with a focus on academic achievement. The 12-year-old online journal is described as an open-access, refereed publication designed to meet reference and education needs of the international dermatology community.
