Dermatology Training

Dr. Tam is board certified in both dermatology and family medicine. After her residency in family medicine, she chose to complete an additional 3-year residency in dermatology and dermatological surgery. During this time, she trained in clinical dermatology, cosmetic dermatology, hair transplant procedures, lasers, dermatological surgery, and Mohs micrographic surgery.

As chief resident, she presided as the primary surgeon in hundreds of Mohs micrographic surgeries — highly specialized procedures for the optimal treatment of skin cancer. The American Society of Mohs Surgery allowed her the honor of taking their board exams prior to graduating, and she became a fellow of the board immediately after graduation.
