The Dermatology Outpatient Center includes the surgeries of three dermatologists.  In addition to the start and monitoring of biological drug therapies (e.g. intravenous therapies), the treatment of the most difficult atopic and psoriasis patients is centralised in the special outpatient clinics of the Dermatology Outpatient Center.
 
Various UV phototherapies (UVAB, UVB, UVA1 and PUVA therapies) and Bucky therapy (superficial x-ray therapy) are provided and photo-patch tests conducted in the Dermatology Outpatient Center. In most cases, phototherapy is administered two to three times a week over treatment periods of 15 to 25 occasions. 
 
New patients are given treatment advice by the psoriasis nurse and some patients visit the nurse after a phototherapy or topical treatment period for treatment follow up.
