Gold Foundation logo In honor of National Thank a Resident Day on Friday, Feb. 23, we want to say a huge "thank you" to our outstanding Dermatology residents and fellows! 

While every day should be Thank a Resident Day, this is a wonderful occasion to showcase our gratitude to our dedicated residents and fellows. 

Our residents are an integral part of the UW Dermatology clinical team and provide excellent care for the patients in our community. Additionally, our residents and fellows are learners and teachers within the Department, whether it be working with medical students rotating in dermatology, giving Grand Rounds to students, fellow residents and faculty alike, or conducting and contributing to research initiatives. Our residents are constantly in pursuit of innovation and lifelong learning. 

Thank you to all of our residents and fellows for your enthusiasm and commitment to our mission and values! 

Faculty & Staff Messages of Appreciation 

To express our thanks, we asked faculty and staff from UW Dermatology to share messages of appreciation with our trainees. 

Every day you ask questions that improve our care, you support our patients and our teaching mission, you help strengthen our team, you prepare us for the future. THANK YOU! —Dr. Paul Nghiem

I feel so proud and lucky to have a role in your education and development as interesting, kind and helpful humans!

Very grateful to our wonderful residents for all their efforts in prioritizing patient care, mentoring students, advancing equity, and making our Department a supportive place to work and learn.

Special shout-out to Dr. Lindsay Gunnell and Dr. Miriam Alam who have continuity clinics at Fred Hutch every Monday morning.
