I am serving as Chairman, Department of Dermatology since 23.08.2011. I have more than 22 years of teaching experience in dermatology. I did clinical attachment at the Glaxo Department of Dermatology, Middlesbrough, England, UK.
I am also working as In-charge, Cosmo-laser clinic & STI clinic. During my chairmanship, I have been able to start a new course of M.D. (Dermatology, Venereology & Leprosy) in 2014 with an initial intake of two students annually and thus was able to make our Department as Post Graduate Department of Dermatology. The First batch of M.D. (DVL) exam was conducted successfully under MCI Inspection in the month of June 2017 and MCI gave recognition to our two M.D. (DVL) seats. The number of M.D. (DVL) seats was increased from two to five from the academic session 2017-18 which were recognised in 2020 by the NMC. I have also started Laser Therapy, Phototherapy, Dermatosurgery and established the specialized Acne Clinic, STI Clinic, Leprosy Clinic, Psoriasis Clinic, Pigmentary disease & Vitiligo Clinic and Autoimmune & Vesiculobullous Disease Clinic in the Department. I have also been a postgraduate examiner to various universities, MCQ paper setter for DNB course, subject expert of various State Public Service Commissions. I have supervisor/co-supervisor of 21 M.D. theses of dermatology and other specialities. Teaching Dermatology to M.D. (DVL), MBBS, BDS and Physiotherapy students is also a part of my duty. I have been attending several Training programmes, Workshops, National and International Conferences, presented papers and chaired sessions at several conferences and have published 92 scientific papers in reputed national/international journals. My main areas of specializations are Acne, Leprosy, Melasma, Bullous disorders and Dermatosurgery especially the Cosmo laser Surgery. I am Member, Editorial Advisory Board, Indian Journal of Clinical Dermatology; Life Member, Indian Association of Dermatologists, Venerologists and Leprologists; and Member, Society for Pediatric Dermatology.
