Peter A Young
Visiting Scholar, Dermatology
BioAs a Visiting Scholar in the Department of Dermatology, I am fortunate to have world-class mentors and colleagues who are committed to a collaborative approach to research. Having a family history of melanoma, I am passionate about investigating skin cancers and other skin conditions. In 2022, I was named Dermatology PA of the Year by the Society of Dermatology Physician Assistants, a national organization with over 4,700 members.
I have co-authored 30 academic publications on a variety of topics including dermatologic surgery, rare skin conditions, allergen content of skin care products, and the state of diversity within the dermatology profession. My writing has appeared in the Journal of the American Medical Association, Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology, Cutis, and elsewhere. My work has also been cited in UpToDate- the world’s most widely used evidence-based encyclopedia for medical professionals.
Most importantly, I believe in exercising empathy and compassion, taking the time to listen to patients as if they were family. To me, there is no greater responsibility or privilege than to be trusted with another person’s health.
