As a southern California native, Dr. Lin grew up near Los Angeles and graduated from the University of California, San Diego with a degree in engineering. After spending years working in the private sector, he developed an affinity towards helping others and eventually decided to pursue a career in medicine.
His hard work and diligence led to his acceptance to a highly competitive graduate program at Kansas City University. There, he developed a strong interest in dermatology and focused his research in developing new methods of diagnosing dangerous skin cancers.
Upon earning a masters degree after completion of his research, Dr. Lin moved back home to southern California to attend medical school at Western University of Health Sciences. He spent the next four years expanding his medical knowledge and incorporated several fundamental values of treating his patients as a whole rather than a condition.
After graduating medical school, Dr. Lin interned at Westchester General Hospital for a year prior to starting his dermatology training with the University of North Texas. During the course of his training, he diagnosed and treated a wide range of skin conditions, educated his peers at conferences, and published several journal articles.
