Ali McKean joined Bend Dermatology Clinic in 2010 with 7 yrs of experience as a Physician Assistant.  She has been interested in medicine from an early age.In First Grade, when assigned to write what she wanted to be when she grew up, she wrote “doktur” (pronounced “Physician Assistant”).

Because so many dermatological conditions stem from conditions arising from other systemsof the body, she gets to use a broad range of knowlege from other areas of medicine,and she enjoys this opportunity. She also e njoys working with multi generational patient populations treating the skin conditions at every age.

Ali enjoys all of the activities Bend has to offer, and loves getting to live where others only get to vacation.

Ali received her BS degree from Oregon State University

Physician’s Assistant school:  University of Florida.
