Dr. Newsha Lajevardi is a board certified dermatologist who practices medical, pediatric and cosmetic dermatology, cutaneous surgery, and laser surgery.
She completed her bachelor’s degree in psychology from Northwestern University and then went on to complete her master’s degree in medical sciences at the Boston University School of Medicine. During her time at Boston University she completed coursework alongside medical students and intricately learned about the medical school admissions process through extensive mentorship with the Boston University deans of admission. Additionally, she was an academic tutor for other medical and dental students in physiology, endocrinology, and immunology. Before attending medical school, she conducted translational medicine research at the Boston University department of dermatology followed by clinical research at the Boston University section of endocrinology.

Even before joining Medschoolcoach she was closely involved with essay editing and interview preparation for family and friends applying to medical school.

Dr. Lajevardi received her medical degree from Michigan State University College of Human Medicine.

During her time at Brown University, she was highly involved in the application and interview process for prospective dermatology residents. She also serves as a mentor to Michigan State University medical students interested applying to the field of dermatology. Additionally, she has lectured to other physicians at both regional and national meetings and has been published in major medical journals.  As a native to Miami and after spending many years enduring harsh Midwestern and New England winters, Dr. Lajevardi recently returned back home to South Florida with her family and practices in Fort Lauderdale.
