While we care for individual patients and train learners one at a time, we also view discovery and training from a big picture viewpoint, examining molecular pathways driving skin disorders, skin diseases at population health levels, or perspectives on how to train a healthcare workforce to deal with skin diseases in populations of the future, here and abroad.
