LOWELL GOLDSMITH LECTURESHIP
LOWELL A. GOLDSMITH, MD, MPH
Dr. Lowell A. Goldsmith joined the UNC Department of Dermatology in July 1, 2002 and currently is an Emeritus Professor of Dermatology at UNC School of Medicine.
Dr. Goldsmith earned his M.D. degree from State University of New York at Brooklyn, completed his residency at UCLA Medical Center, and later served as a Research Associate at the NIH and Research Fellow at Harvard Medical School and Brandeis University. Lowell was an Assistant Professor of Dermatology at Harvard Medical School, Associate Professor and Professor of Medicine & Dermatology at Duke University. Later he served as Professor and Chairman of Dermatology at University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry, Acting Chairman of Medicine and Dean.
Dr. Goldsmith is a national and international leader in the field of dermatology. He has received innumerable awards from the research and clinical community as represented by the Society for Investigative Dermatology and the American Academy of Dermatology. With his broad background, views and energy, he is actively involved in the teaching programs at both UNC and Duke. He always picks the winning teams and is personally proud and pleased of the endowed lectureship project of the APD.
The APD leadership is securing endowment funds from forward looking individuals to support our noble mission of preserving academic dermatology. In particular, we have begun to raise funds for first APD named lectureship to recognize a renowned dermatology academician: Dr. Lowell A. Goldsmith. The purpose of this effort is to develop a fund to support a guest lecture by a national leader in fields such as medical education, health care, and research that are appropriate to the APD.
It is extremely important that we all contribute to this important endeavor in Dermatology as a founding member of a group that we are defining as the Friends of Lowell. We believe that completing the Lowell A. Goldsmith Endowment will help enrich the annual APD meeting and have a tremendous impact on all of our academic programs. We hope you will join this effort as a Friend of Lowell. Please contact The APD Office if you have questions and we thank you in advance for your contribution to this effort.
