Beth McLellan, M.D., has been named chief of the division of dermatology at Einstein and Montefiore. An associate professor of medicine at Einstein and a clinical dermatologist at Montefiore, she previously served as director of dermatology at Jacobi Medical Center.
Dr. McLellan specializes in oncodermatology—diagnosing, treating, and managing the complications of cancer. She has previously worked at New York University’s Grossman School of Medicine and the NYU Langone Medical Center.
“Dr. McLellan is an exceptional leader, outstanding educator, and role model,” says Yaron Tomer, M.D., professor and chair of the department of medicine at Einstein and Montefiore and the Anita and Jack Saltz Chair in Diabetes Research at Einstein. “She created the oncodermatology program at the Albert Einstein Cancer Center, leads an annual free skin cancer screening in the Bronx, and helped start a committee for diversity, inclusion, and cultural competency in dermatology.”
A graduate of Wayne State University School of Medicine in Detroit, Dr. McLellan completed her internal medicine internship at Loyola University in Maywood, Illinois, followed by a dermatology residency at the Henry Ford Health System in Detroit, where she was chief resident. She is currently collaborating with Montefiore and Einstein researchers in infectious diseases, bioinformatics, and radiation oncology to examine the interconnected roles of the immune system and microbiome in driving radiation dermatitis.
