Dr. Lipworth is a dermatologist in practice at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, where he directs the Program for Infectious Diseases of the Skin. After medical school at the University of Pennsylvania and Internal Medicine internship at Massachusetts General Hospital, he completed his dermatology training at the Harvard Combined Residency Program, and then an apprenticeship in Infectious Disease-Dermatology at Kings College London, under the tutelage of Professor Roderick Hay and Dr. Rachael Morris-Jones. His clinic in Boston focuses on patients with systemic infections that affect the skin, or with primary cutaneous infections that are severe, refractory, or otherwise challenging.
