Our Mission: “Win the Skin!”
St. Luke’s Dermatology Residency seeks to become the region’s top-rated dermatology training program through which you will go forth to “Win the Skin!” – as lifelong learners who make an impact on the specialty of dermatology.
The desire to launch our new training program stems from the following factors:
- A surging patient population
- A local shortage of dermatologists
- An enthusiasm to teach amongst our faculty
- A unique model of programmatic support from hospital leadership
Our faculty members have embraced this common mission because the better we prepare and educate you the more successful we will be in terms of meeting the dermatological needs of the Lehigh Valley and retaining well-trained talent on the St. Luke's team. Consequently, we actively partner with you from the outset to help you develop the skills you will need to be independent, competent, compassionate practitioners of dermatology. You are also encouraged to develop study habits, leadership skills, and administrative expertise that will help you maintain a lifelong interest in the practice of dermatology.
I am a dermatologist specializing in pediatric dermatology, so I see patients of all ages, from newborns to the elderly. I treat skin issues ranging from acne, eczema, warts, scarring and psoriasis to basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma and melanoma. In addition to treating patients at St. Luke’s Dermatology, I also oversee the dermatology residency program at St. Luke’s.
“A good dermatologist heals the skin; a great dermatologist heals the patient.”
– Dr. Krakowski
At the end of your three years, you will be an intellectually curious clinician and an ambassador to the specialty of dermatology. We are proud of the unique resources we offer our next generation of dermatology trainees, and we are thrilled to take the next steps with you on your path to becoming a board-certified dermatologist.
- Andrew Krakowski, MD, Program Director
