Neil Prose’s overall area of interest is pediatric dermatology. In the course of providing patient care, his aim is to advance scientific knowledge in this field. This goal is achieved through clinical observation, clinical trials, and collaboration with laboratories exploring the molecular basis of disease.
He is also interested in providing care for skin disease in developing countries. Through a number of projects in Latin America and Africa, he has developed protocols and teaching manuals for this purpose.
Dr. Prose is also actively involved in developing new models for teaching doctor-patient communication to medical students, residents and practicing physicians in all fields of medicine. His work in this area includes some new methods for teaching empathic communication in the course of traditional morbidity and mortality conferences.
