Jeff Lackey joins the Tulane Dermatology team after retiring from a career in the U.S. Army, where he capped 25 years of military service by heading the Dermatology Service at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, in Bethesda, Maryland. Jeff attended medical school at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences and dermatology residency at Walter Reed. He subsequently completed fellowship training in Micrographic Surgery and Dermatologic Oncology (Mohs) in Boston, MA and returned to Walter Reed, where he has served for the last seven years in both academic and leadership roles. With his expertise in managing skin cancers and his years of experience within the military healthcare system (including two deployments to the Middle East), Jeff brings a unique perspective and skill set to the Tulane community. He and his family have moved multiple times over the course of a military career. However, both Jeff and his wife, Kim, who is a New Orleans native, received their undergraduate degrees from Tulane, so this is a homecoming for the Lackey family.
