Dear Colleagues:

It is my great pleasure to share with you the exciting news that BU Dermatology is currently ranked the #13 Department of Dermatology in the United States based on the most recent survey completed in December 2014. This is a significant improvement in ranking over the past few years and is a substantial improvement from our ranking of #26 in 2010. I am extremely grateful for all of the hard work provided by all members of our BU Dermatology Team in making this exceptional progress possible, and you should all feel proud of your tremendous accomplishments and significant contributions that made this amazing achievement possible. It is wonderful to see how far we have come in just a few short years!
