This will involve clinical and research mentorship as well as guided journal clubs, book reviews and dermatopathology rounds.

The successful candidate will join two other full-time faculty, a resident, and a dedicated service technician in a brand-new 1,500 square foot dermatology suite. This spacious area has plenty of natural light, two multi-headed teaching microscopes with a monitor, a dedicated multi-media capable rounds room and a separate bathing/cat room. The dermatology service has access to a new Aesculight CO2 laser as well as to an updated video otoscope system with video and image capture capabilities. Other facilities at LSU Vet Med include a full-service state of the art radiology suite (including digital radiography and fluoroscopy, picture archiving and communication system as well as ultrasound, CT, and MRI capabilities for both large and small animals), a brand-new state of the art linear accelerator and radiation therapy suite, a newly constructed animal diagnostic laboratory and a freshly remodeled laboratory animal facility.

The Dermatology service is a tightly woven team of individuals with a strong history of both inter- and extra-specialty collaboration. We have an excellent and collegial working relationship with all the services in the hospital (including large animal and exotic services). Current faculty areas of focus include immunology of allergic reactions and fungal infections, cutaneous parasitology, and comprehensive treatment of otitis externa.
