We are pleased to announce that our former chief resident and current fellow, Justin Leitenberger, M.D., has accepted an appointment and will be staying on with the department after his fellowship. “After four years in Portland at OHSU, I'm excited to join the faculty and to have this opportunity to strengthen our department with Dr. Leachman's leadership,” says Leitenberger. 

Starting in September, Dr. Leitenberger will see patients at OHSU on Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays doing a combination of Mohs, transplant patient clinic (more information about this new clinic will be available soon), excisions and cosmetics. Also, in another mutually beneficial collaboration he has accepted a partial appointment with the Veterans Affairs Medical Center, and will be performing Mohs surgery there on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.  

Dr. Leitenberger attended the University of Notre Dame for his undergraduate degree and the University of Texas Medical School at Houston for his medical degree. Following a year at Brackenridge Hospital in Austin, Texas, he moved to Portland for his residency and fellowship.  

He says he chose to work at OHSU because of his positive experiences during residency and his fellowship within the department and the university. “Patients who come to OHSU are in search of the highest quality care and service, which is the excellence I am determined to provide,” says Dr. Leitenberger. “The VA offers a different environment with a tremendous need for dermatologic surgical expertise. I am excited to work with Stephanie (Dr. Mengden), Al (Dr. Solomon), and Anna (Dr. Bar) in this capacity to serve our veterans.”
