Currently the department has 11 faculty members, 25 post-graduate students, 10 senior residents and 3 Ph D scholars.  

The department is widely recognised for the quality and innovativeness of its teaching programme for both undergraduate and postgraduates and its contributions to patient care and research. The latter include advances in the diagnosis and treatment of pemphigus, vitiligo (using both medical and surgical techniques and phototherapy), air-borne contact dermatitis, mycetoma, drug reactions, epidermolysis bullosa, ichthyosis-associated rickets and dermatopathology, among others. Faculty members have authored several popular undergraduate and postgraduate textbooks that are used in centres around the world.  

Members of the faculty have served in leadership positions in national and international professional organisations, provided consultations to governmental and non-governmental agencies, organised workshops and conferences, served on the faculty of meetings worldwide and as visiting professors at universities in other countries.
