— Dr. Alam

What do you value about your work?

I care a lot about building relationships, meeting people where they are and constantly learning and growing. I enjoy working as part of a team to assist patients with skin conditions.

By applying the latest research to treatment, we work together to push care forward.

What brought you to dermatology?

I practiced in internal medicine for several years, including working as a hospitalist. I became interested in dermatology because it’s a very visual field that also allows us to make major management decisions with patients and provide care over time. I value how we work closely with oncologists, surgeons and other specialists, collaborating on how to best care for patients.

We make promising new treatments available to you through studies called clinical trials led by Fred Hutch physicians. Many of these trials at Fred Hutch have led to FDA-approved treatments and have improved standards of care globally. Together, you and your physician can decide if a study is right for you.
