Rhett Drugge, M.D.

Dr. Rhett Drugge is a native of Darien, Connecticut and a graduate of Harvard University. Graduating with a baccalaureate degree in Intellectual History, he went to Washington DC and wrote senatorial speeches for Connecticut Senator Lowell Weicker. A few years later, he distinguished himself in medical research at Yale University by discovering the receptor for cyclosporin A (the major drug for organ transplant patients). He then matriculated to New York Medical College in Valhalla, New York where he went on to receive his medical degree. While a medical student, he served some of his medical rounds at Stamford Hospital. He completed his medical internship at New York University and then served his Dermatology Residency at the University of Michigan.

Board Certified in both Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery in 1992, Dr. Drugge is a member of the Society for Investigative Dermatology, the American Academy of Dermatology, and the American Society for Mohs Surgery. He is the founder of the Internet Dermatology Society and he is the Chief Editor of the Electronic Textbook of Dermatology. Dr. Drugge has written numerous database information systems for networked medical record keeping, with a special focus on physician to physician communications & dermatology information systems. He also designs and tests imaging solutions for the skin care industry.

In 2008 Dr. Drugge was granted a patent for his unique invention, the Melanoscan system for whole body imaging, which aids in the early detection of skin cancers. He is also active in interviewing prospective undergraduates for Harvard.

Dr. Drugge and his wife Heather live in Darien with their three children.
