News, Highlights and

Welcome to the Division of

Dermatology at the
University of Washington

The mission of the Division of Dermatology is to provide outstanding patient care, train and mentor future leaders in dermatology, and advance dermatologic knowledge. We provide high quality patient care at multiple sites in the
greater Seattle area, in conjunction with one of the nation's
top dermatology residency and training programs.

Laura Swanson and Alice Zhao complete 3 years of
Dermatology residency June 2015!

Highlights of the past three years:
Laura and Alice both delivered beautiful baby girls during their residency.

Alice traveled to Scotland for a poster presentation on Bacterial challenge study in porous polyHEMA implants at the International Investigative Dermatology Conference. She conducted her third year on an investigative track quantifying the extent and evaluating the sources of errors in interpreting melanocytic lesions, working with Dr. Joann Elmore’s team in epidemiology to develop a diagnostic-treatment mapping tool that stratifies treatments.

Laura served her third year as Chief Resident, providing fun and leadership to her fellow residents. She traveled to Washington DC for a poster presentation on Cutaneous HTLV-1 Associated Adult T-Cell Leukemia/Lymphoma.

Fortunately Laura and Alice will both continue as dermatology colleagues in the Northwest – Laura at the Polyclinic Madison Center and Alice at the Dermatology Clinic on Mercer Island. Alice plans also to volunteer in the Roosevelt Acute Care clinic as a UW clinical faculty member.

To join in their graduation festivities on June 23rd, contact Theresa Steig.
