Celebrating Dr. John Olerud

and his 26 years of service as
Dermatology Division Head

We celebrated a grand man, in grand style.
Approximately 180 people came from all over the country to help celebrate the amazing career of Dr. John Olerud. The speakers for the program included Dr. Nghiem, Dr. Fleckman and Dr. Bremner. After the program ended in the lovely auditorium at South Lake Union, not a dry eye was in the house.

Be a part of the Olerud Legacy...

To celebrate Dr. John Olerud’s countless contributions to the dermatology profession, UW Medicine is committed to elevating the John E. Olerud Endowed Professorship for Dermatology Training to chair status. An endowed chair is the highest, most prestigous honor that UW Medicine can bestow on a member of our faculty. We're so close to chair status, please consider being a part of Dr. Olerud's legacy. Watch the video below for further information....


The Olerud endowed chair would continue the Division of Dermatology’s longstanding dedication to providing excellent training for residents and medical students. This chair position would also provide tangible benefits: extra funding to pay for salaries, support for resident training opportunities and education-based research, as well as dedicated time for the holder to focus on innovative teaching, training and curriculum development.
