Dr. Michelle Hure
Dr. Michelle Hure is a California native, having been born and raised into a farming family in the Central Valley. She’s lived all over the country and has finally settled in the idyllic town of San Juan Capistrano. Dr. Hure attended the University of California, Davis for undergraduate and graduate school, while working as a lecturer, anatomy instructor and medic on an ambulance. She also conducted novel research in the laboratory during her free time. She transferred her enthusiasm to her medical school studies at Ross University, where she helped to establish a charity health clinic, was hired to help teach anatomy to her fellow medical students and served multiple other leadership roles, while still graduating with high honors. Dr. Hure went on to complete her Internal Medicine internship at Yale-New Haven-affiliated Saint Mary’s Hospital. She completed her Anatomic Pathology residency, serving as Chief Resident her final year, at the University of Massachusetts. She stayed on at UMass and graduated from Dermatopathology fellowship.
Dr. Hure is double board certified by the American Board of Dermatology and the American Board of Pathology in both Dermatopathology and Anatomic Pathology. A Dermatopathologist receives comprehensive training in both dermatology and pathology of the skin. Dr. Hure has authored peer-reviewed articles, a book chapter and presented her research at national meetings of the American Society of Dermatopathology and the United States and Canadian Academy of Pathology. She has lectured as faculty for national dermatology conferences and served as the Director of Pathology and sole dermatopathologist for one of the largest dermatology groups on the west coast. Dr. Hure is also Assistant Clinical Professor in the Department of Dermatology at the University of California, Irvine.
When not working, she spends time with her young family and enjoys the amazing Southern California weather (while wearing sunscreen, of course).
