OTHER INFORMATION:

Dr. Wisco is the Director of the Cutaneous Oncology Program. He is a board-certified dermatologist and has completed a Mohs Micrographic Surgery Fellowship under Donald J. Grande, MD, the first Mohs Surgeon in Boston, MA, along with a Melanoma Clinical Research Fellowship at Harvard Medical School, Massachusetts General Hospital & the Wellman Center for Photomedicine in Boston, MA.

Much of Dr. Wisco’s medical career has been in the military, where he has served over 20 years in the US Air Force and currently a Colonel in the US Air Force Reserves. He has also previously served as a part-time Assistant Professor of Dermatology for Emory University School of Medicine, Tulane University School of Medicine, Oregon Health & Science University, and the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences.

In addition to his clinical work, Dr. Wisco has been heavily involved in healthcare improvement initiatives primarily through the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), the American College of Mohs Surgery (ACMS), and the American Medical Association’s National Quality Registry Network (NQRN). Most significantly, his work guided the development of the AAD’s national performance measurement system and data registry (DataDerm) for all of dermatology.

Dr. Wisco’s interest in healthcare performance improvement parallels his clinical research interest of understanding the risk factors that lead to high-risk skin cancer and advanced melanoma to improve care processes and promote health. With his research/performance improvement interest, informatics background, and policy work, Dr. Wisco is dedicated to exploring methods to integrate patients, clinicians, health systems, and city governments to drive the creation of healthy sustainable communities.
