About the Author

After graduating from West Point with a degree in engineering, and Indiana University with an MD, Dr. James trained in dermatology with an icon of the day, Richard Odom. Dr. Odom was the best of a long line of wonderful clinician-educators in military medicine and has remained a model for Dr. James as he has maintained an interest in all aspects of medical dermatology.

In 1987, just 6 years after residency, Dr. James was named the Chief of Dermatology at Walter Reed Army Medical Center. After 8 years at the helm, he moved into a position at a grand institution, the University of Pennsylvania, so that he could mostly teach, care for patients and write.

Among his nearly 300 publications are many books, the most significant being Andrews’ Diseases of the Skin (co-authorship of four editions), the Emedicine Dermatology text (founding editor) and the Military Medicine Textbook of Dermatology (editor).
He enjoys the beach, exercising, reading and any activity with family and friends.
