Dr. M. David Meyer earned a Bachelor of Arts degree with concentrations in biology and music from Austin College in Sherman, Texas. He earned a Doctor of Medicine from the University of Texas Health Science Center School of Medicine in San Antonio. Because of his interest in public health, he also earned a Certificate in Public Health through the University of Texas School of Public Health in Houston, TX.
He completed an internship at Yale-New Haven Hospital with the renowned Yale School of Medicine in New Haven, CT, and a dermatology residency at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio where he served as a chief resident his final year.
Dr. Meyer is an active volunteer, serving underserved communities and children. His interest in dermatology began while he was a medical school student, volunteering in Ethiopia for four weeks. “It was in this isolated setting that I was first exposed to the field of dermatology, as a large majority of the complaints I handled were dermatologic in nature,” he says. “I further explored this newfound interest by volunteering at Camp Discovery, a summer camp hosted by the American Academy of Dermatology for children suffering from chronic skin conditions. I came to appreciate how the field of dermatology has the capability to substantially improve one’s self-esteem.” As a result of his innumerable volunteer experiences, he successfully founded a non-profit organization dedicated to extending educational opportunities to underprivileged children and their families around the world.
Dr. Meyer is a trained classical musician and continues to play piano. He also enjoys attending the symphony, working out and traveling, especially overseas.
