Cutis is the official journal of the Association of Military Dermatologists (AMD).

A Military Dermatology column is published quarterly and focuses on an important area of skin disease in which military dermatologists have extensive expertise.

We are honored to work with Cutis on this Military Dermatology column, which allows for a range of topics such as: grooming standards and their effects on skin (PFB, AKN, etc), travel medicine, disorders affecting returning soldiers, important considerations in treating the military population, and even more common research/topics which highlight the contributions of military dermatologists.

If you would like to contribute to the quarterly column please click here.

Prior to submission please visit the Cutis journal website to review the topics previously published to ensure your potential manuscript adds to the originality of thought for Cutis readership to enjoy.
