Guest Speaker

Dr. Zirwas originally hails from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, which is also where he completed his undergraduate degree, medical school, and dermatology residency, all at the University of Pittsburgh, where he also took his first faculty job. He moved to Ohio State University in 2006 and ran the residency program and contact dermatitis clinic until 2015.

n 2015, he and his wife (a cosmetic dermatologist who was also on faculty at Ohio State) left OSU to start a new location in a large dermatology private practice in Columbus. His practice continues to be dedicated to seeing patients with difficult to figure out or difficult to control pruritic dermatoses. He is a member of the North American Contact Dermatitis Group and of the Board of Directors of the Association of Professors of Dermatology, but his proudest professional accomplishment is being the world’s leading expert on hot tub allergy.

He has two wonderful daughters, two wonderful step-kids, a beautiful wife, got his first tattoo while in Puerto Rico earlier this year and has absolutely no free time.
