“Transgender Dermatology for Adults: The Past, the Present, and Future Directions”

Presented by Dr. Tien Nguyen, MD


Dr. Nguyen grew up in Vietnam, and has lived and worked in many places across the US. He obtained his undergraduate degree from Brown University in Providence, RI, and finished medical school at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio, TX. During medical school, he worked as a clinical research associate at the Department of Dermatology, University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), where he learned from treatment experts and developed skills related to clinical trials for psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, and hidradenitis suppurativa. He completed a one-year internship in Internal Medicine at California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco, CA, and a dermatology residency at the University of Colorado in Aurora, CO. He did spend the first two years of dermatology residency at the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque, NM.

His interests outside of work vary from music and physical fitness to food. Dr. Nguyen would describe himself as a foodie and enjoys restaurant recommendations as well as recipes for home-prepared meals. He speaks Vietnamese, French, and some Swedish and enjoys traveling immensely. It is his primary career goal to treat all of his patients with the utmost respect while providing the best care possible when it comes to their skin-related needs and/or issues.
