What I Didn’t Learn in Residency
Jennifer Holman, MD paid a visit to the Dermcast TV studio to talk about what she DIDN’T learn in residency. Putting special emphasis on the fact that clinicians should never stop learning, Dr. Holman also tackles the difficult topic of physician/PA burnout and different ways you can “refill your tank.”
“I had no idea cosmetic dermatology was going to be part of my life. That’s not where I finished. I finished [residency] as a strong medical dermatologist but after 10 years, it this strange thing…I’m like the dermatologist who doesn’t know what she wants to be when she grows up. It’s [her practice] is 1/3 cosmetic, 1/3 medical and 1/3 surgical is where I’ve landed, and it’s a really nice practice balance for me. I love the variety.”
Dr. Jennifer D. Holman received her Doctor of Medicine from the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine in 2004, graduating with special academic distinction. During her residency in the Department of Dermatology at the University of Missouri, she was awarded a Women’s Dermatologic Society mentorship grant to work with the pediatric dermatology department at Northwestern University in Chicago, Illinois. Excelling in every opportunity afforded, she was chief resident in the Department of Dermatology at the University of Missouri when hired by U.S. Dermatology Partners. Dr. Holman delivers advanced and comprehensive care for skin disorders in addition to performing cosmetic surgeries and services such as Botox and Dysport, fillers, laser hair removal, microneedling, hydrafacials, laser treatments, platelet-rich plasma therapy, Kybella, CoolSculpting, chemical peels, fillers such as Juvederm and Pellevé RF.
