Dr. Hoffman received her Bachelor of Arts in Neuroscience and Behavior with honors from Barnard College. She completed her medical degree at Albert Einstein College of Medicine where she graduated with a Distinction in Research in Dermatology for her work on treatment and the psychosocial burden of Hidradenitis Suppurativa.
