After defending her doctoral dissertation, the doctor worked in the Department of Dermatology of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in Bethesda, USA. Then Dr. Stebut-Borschitz took part in a comprehensive training program on cellular immunology with a special focus on dendritic cell biology. Since 1997, Dr. Stebut-Borschitz has been engaged in the study of dendritic cells in conjunction with the protective responses of the immune system in allergic, autoimmune and infectious diseases. In 2007, the doctor received additional qualifications in dermatological histology. Prof. Stebut-Borschitz received many international awards for her achievements in research, for example, the Boehringer Ingelheim Prize (2007). Dr. Stebut-Borschitz occupies the position of the Chief Physician and also conducts special consultations for patients with neurodermatitis. She has deep knowledge and extensive experience in the diagnosis and treatment of infectious skin diseases. In addition, the professor gives lectures for medical students.

The Department of Dermatology and Venereology treats skin diseases, including diseases of the visible mucous membranes and the so-called appendages of the skin (hair, nails). The department under the direction of Prof. Dr. med. Esther von Stebut-Borschitz is constantly undertaking scientific research in the field of dermatovenereology. 

The department pays key attention to such diseases as neurodermatitis, psoriasis or skin tumors (white or black skin cancer), as well as allergies, bullous diseases, infections of the skin or mucous membranes caused by viruses, bacteria or fungi. In addition, the department also treats sexually transmitted diseases, venous diseases, chronic wounds and ulcers. The diagnosis and treatment are based on a comprehensive approach, since the condition of the skin can be affected by numerous diseases, including connective tissue disorders and other disorders of the immune system. 

The Department of Dermatology and Venereology includes one polyclinic with special outpatient departments, operating rooms and an outpatient clinic. All together, the inpatient department contains 56 beds in both single and double patient rooms.
