Chairperson’s Welcome Message

​​​Dr.Abdul-Ghani Kibbi.jpgOn behalf of the Department of Dermatology, I welcome you to our website where you will experience “who we are” by navigating smoothly through its pages. Dermatology at AUB is as old as AUB itself. Since its inception in 1866, the skin clinic rendered its services to the people of Lebanon and the Middle East.

We aim at providing professional and academic excellence in post-graduate training, under-graduate programs, original research of competitive value, leadership in national, regional, and international arenas of dermatology and optimal if not maximal patient-centered skin care. This endeavor is in line with our institution’s vision of transforming medical education, research and practice, and most importantly, medical care in the region, bringing them to new levels of excellence.

The Department offers one of the oldest first class post-graduate medical education to trainees, paving their way to become future leaders, successful clinicians, and prominent researchers.

Our comprehensive and compassionate skin care is versatile and comprised of diagnostic and therapeutic services in medical and procedural dermatology as well as cosmetic and aesthetic medicine. These are provided by up-to-date clinicians and physician investigators who conduct cutting edge research at the basic and translational levels.

As we look to the never-ending developments in science, our commitment will remain focused on sustainable growth and the acquisition of services and technologies to cater to our community and the region at large.
