UCI School of Medicine's Department of Dermatology aims to be a world leader in the investigation and treatment of skin disease fueled by discovery, inclusion and medical excellence.

It is our mission to provide leading-edge training for our residents and fellows in medical dermatology, multidisciplinary specialty dermatology, surgical dermatology and dermatopathology. All our trainees participate in groundbreaking therapies and actively engage in research projects, often winning awards to showcase their work at national conferences. Our residents cover dermatologic emergencies 24 hours a day at UCI Health, which is one of the leading burn units in Southern California. They provide care to underinsured and uninsured patients, supplying a huge service to the community.  

Now, you can shape the future of dermatology by providing critical funding to support training and research efforts for the next generation of dermatologists. Your gifts will help fund research projects, sponsor travel for trainees to present their work at medical conferences and provide opportunities for elective rotations that include global health initiatives and unique mentorship experiences with experts in rare diseases outside our institution.    

Highlights from our department:

This past year, four of our residents achieved high-esteem awards:

    • Anna Marie Hosking, MD – Women’s Dermatologic Society (WDS) scholarship winner, winter clinical
    • Justin Arnold, MD –  2022 American Academy of Dermatology Association National Legislative Conference Scholarship winner
    • Katerina Yale, MD –  Women’s Dermatologic Society (WDS) scholarship winner - Stanford University, winter clinical research presentation
    • Xiying Fan, MD, PhD  – Medical Dermatology Society (MDS) scholarship winner, Stanford University, specializing in rare skin lymphomas. 

Philanthropic support is vital to our success in preparing these future skin disease experts for careers in clinical and academic medicine. We invite you to join us in supporting our dermatology residents on Giving Day.
