Neonatal Derm with Dr Marissa Joseph

September 24, 2020

Neonatal dermatology, treating newborn infants under the age of one month, can be one of the greatest challenges facing a dermatologist. How do you treat a patient that is so small, helpless and unable to express the pain, or other effects of the the skin issues that are presenting. For this interview, Kerri Purdy is happy to be joined by someone with deep knowledge and expertise in both neonatal and dermatological care. Dr. Marrisa Joseph teaches pediatrics and dermatology at the University of Toronto and is the Director of the Ricky Kanee Schachter Dermatology Centre at Women’s College Hospital. And this episode also turns out to be a reunion! Kerri and Marissa were classmates at Dalhousie medical school, back in the day.

*** Residents Questions in this episode are from Ilya Mukovozov from the University of British Columbia, Abdulhadi Jfri from McGill University.
