California Society of Dermatology & Dermatologic Surgery Annual Meeting President’s Award (2012)
The 600-bed LAC-USC Medical Center is one of the largest public hospitals in the country. Through its affiliations with the Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California (USC), it is one of the premier academic teaching hospitals in the nation and a leading hospital for training health professionals. As a resident, I underwent thorough training in general medical, surgical, and cosmetic/procedural dermatology. There were also specialty outpatient clinics dealing with complex medical dermatology, Hansen’s Disease, immunobullous disease, and HIV/AIDS, along with rigorous inpatient rotations. As a senior resident, I supervised and taught medical students and junior residents, coordinated resident rotation schedules and clinic coverage, and managed resident concerns.
