Kim Totman is a physician assistant with career-focused experience in the field of dermatology. Before she pursued a career as a PA, she attended Texas A&M University where she earned her bachelor’s degree in Biology. She then worked as a medical assistant at a dermatology clinic. It was there that she discovered her passion for skincare and decided to enroll in the PA program at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. While she was working on her medical studies, Kim was able to do clinical rotations with state-of-the-art dermatology clinicians and even transcribed for oculoplastic and Mohs surgeons. One of her favorite community projects during her studies was called Mela-NO-More and aimed at bringing awareness of melanoma to high school students. Mela-No-More was presented to multiple San Antonio, TX high schools, highlighting the risks of tanning and tanning beds to forwardly educate the key prevention methods and warning signs of melanoma. She is also a member of the Society of Dermatology Physician Assistants, where she recently achieved Diplomate status as a result of additional dermatology training.
