Sarah H. Millan, MD

Sarah H. Millan, MD, is a first-year dermatology resident at MedStar Georgetown University/Washington Hospital Center. She holds a Medical Degree with a scholarly focus in Clinical and Translational Research from George Washington University. Her academic journey began at Vanderbilt University, where she earned a triple major in neuroscience, molecular and cellular biology, and Spanish. Subsequently, she dedicated two years to research at the NIH’s Laboratory of Molecular and Cellular Neurobiology. While her initial passion lay in neuroscience, Dr. Millan’s curiosity swiftly shifted to dermatology during her medical school years. She embarked on a summer research fellowship under the guidance of Dr. Adam J. Friedman, investigating novel therapeutic targets for squamous cell carcinoma.

Dr. Millan is the founder of Learn2Derm, an initiative committed to providing dermatologic education and resources to underserved and historically marginalized communities. She is also the Co-Founder of Serve Your Skin, a nationwide tennis tournament initiative promoting skin cancer awareness among athletes and raising funds for IMPACT Melanoma’s sunscreen dispensers and education efforts in underserved areas. Dr. Millan shares her life with her fiancé, a former Vanderbilt tennis player. This, together with his prior lack of sunscreen use, helped inspire and motivate Serve Your Skin. She is happy to share that he has now become a dedicated sunscreen enthusiast. Together, they are loving parents to two miniature schnauzers. In her free time, Dr. Millan likes to spend time with her family, practice hot yoga, visit family in Colombia, and try out new restaurants.
