In this episode of Derms and Conditions, Gary Goldenberg, MD interviews Amy McMichael, MD, Professor and Chair of Dermatology at Wake Forest University School of Medicine and Co-Chair of the Skin of Color Society Scientific Committee. She breaks down how to take personal and professional relationships to the next level to have a fulfilling career, and provides some valuable clinical pearls as well.

Dr. McMichael has found that dermatology is full of wonderful relationships, and that this camaraderie has been the foundation for her success in mentoring residents, students, and even patients. “If you support people, and you make them know that you are confident in their ability […] they do infinitely better.” said Dr. McMichael. “If you want to have a really invigorating career that’s rewarding, you feed [them] and they feed you.”
