Dr. Caitlin Farmer attended Duke University to obtain her biomedical engineering undergraduate degree. Her medical degree was earned at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio, where she remained for her internal medicine internship. Dr. Farmer was a recipient of the Eric Leung Scholarship and became a member of the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Society. Dr. Farmer’s dermatology residency was completed in Detroit at the Henry Ford Hospital.
Dr. Farmer’s background in engineering led her to dermatology because they both involve analytical thinking, attention to detail, hands-on problem solving and maintaining familiarity with emerging technologies. She enjoys drawing on her engineering background and her advanced medical training to create patient-centered, comprehensive treatment plans with patients and their families. Maintaining continuity of care with her patients allows her to see the impact of treatment plans, whether simple or complex, on their lives.
In her spare time, Dr. Farmer enjoys watching movies and college sports, exploring new restaurants and traveling with her husband.
