CELEBRATING 50 YEARS

We are reflecting back on the first 50 years to develop the vision for our next 50. 

We began in 1972 with Dr. Gerald Krueger joining The University of Utah Internal Medicine Department.  Dr. Krueger laid the building blocks for Dermatology to become its own division in 1980, the V.A. partnership followed shortly after in 1986 and the hiring of our previous chair, Dr. John Zone, in 1987.  Dr. Zone entrepreneurial mindset led us to become our own Department in 1990. Fast forward 30 years later with Dr. Zone, passing his chair title to Dr. Kristina Callis Duffin who took over in 2020. Dr. Duffin being the first female chair in the School of Medicine, has enriched the Department with her relentless work ethic and commitment to the DEI initiative.  

We look forward to what the next 50 years will bring!
