After completing medical school at the University of Nebraska, and pediatric and dermatology residencies at Montefiore Hospital in New York City, Dr. Schachner joined the faculty of the University of Miami (UM) Miller School of Medicine in 1978. During his long career at UM, he served as Harvey Blank Professor of pediatrics and chair of the Department of Dermatology and Cutaneous Surgery, was a five-time recipient of the Best Teacher Award, and organized the annual pediatric dermatology conference hosted by the university. Dr. Schachner remains co-director and attending physician of the Division of Pediatric Dermatology at UM Miller School of Medicine, where he mentors medical students on both pediatric and dermatology rotations.
