Please join us in congratulating the University of Washington Division of Dermatology’s 2023 graduating residents and fellows!

This year, UW Dermatology is proud to honor four residents and two subspecialty fellows, all of whom have all made significant contributions to our division through their dedication to compassionate care, impactful research and commitment to learning and supporting fellow trainees. 

"This is the first residency class that I have followed through all three years of training since starting first as Associate Program Director and now as Program Director. To say that they have impacted me and changed who I am as a mentor and teacher is an understatement. They have taught me perspective and patience, inspired me to meet their needs and this moment in time as a leader of the residency program and have truly made me a better person. They each have unique skills and strengths that will brighten the future of our specialty and I am so honored to have been part of their journey. They will make UW proud!" — Markus Boos, MD, PhD, Residency Program Director

We thank you for your focus and hard work, and look forward to celebrating your future accomplishments. Best of luck as you enter this exciting next chapter in your career!

UW Dermatology will be hosting a graduation ceremony on Thursday, June 29, 2023, to celebrate the accomplishments and successes of our graduating residents and fellows.
