OHSU Dermatology offers two significant educational lectureships that each rotate bi-annually:

Walter C. Lobitz, Jr., M.D. Visiting Professorship
Lobitz visiting professors are chosen because they embody the Lobitz spirit of teaching, research, scholarship and mentorship in the legacy of Dr. Lobitz, and because they personify Dr. Lobitz’s ideals in their own work. Lobitz visiting professors are individuals who have truly changed the landscape of dermatology through their contributions to the field of dermatology. Visit the lectureship page for full information.

Frances J. Storrs, M.D., Medical Dermatology Lectureship
The Storrs Lectureship seeks to encourage interaction and dialogue among attendees by focusing on provocative topics that impact the practice of medicine in general and dermatology in particular. The specialty of dermatology is spotlighted, controversial topics are discussed, fiction is separated from fact and myths are busted in a town hall like setting usually featuring a keynote speaker and  an interactive session between panel members and the audience. Visit lectureship page for full information.

The Virtual Melanoma Tumor Board is a joint initiative between OHSU Knight Cancer Institute and Providence Cancer Center. The intent of the program is to bring melanoma experts at OHSU and Providence together and to the community through a virtual platform.
