 Research Expertise & Professional Interests
Hye Jin "Leah" Chung graduated with her MD from Yonsei University College of Medicine, Seoul, Korea in 2001, where she completed her residency and fellowship training in Dermatology. She finished her post-doctoral fellowship and residency in dermatology at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, Philadelphia, PA, in 2014. Dr. Chung joined the faculty of Dermatology, Boston University School of Medicine, upon completion of her dermatopathology fellowship at Boston Medical Center in 2016. She has dual roles within the Department of Dermatology, evaluating patients in the Faculty Practice of Boston Medical Center and signing out skin biopsies at the Skin Pathology Laboratory at Boston University School of Medicine.

Dr Chung's research interests include treating scars, Asian skin diseases, histologic evaluation of the pigmented lesions, nail disorders, and lymphoma
