Markus Daniel Boos, MD, PhD

Dermatology, Vascular Anomalies

On staff since July 2015

Academic Title: Assistant Professor

"My interest in Dermatology stemmed from a family member's diagnosis of melanoma, as well as my interest in our immune system. It was when I started caring for children with skin disorders, however, that I knew I had found my calling. Specializing in pediatric dermatology brings me so much joy: from bringing a smile to a child's face, to relieving a parent's worry or knowing that I am fulfilling a need in a typically underserved medical specialty. I am so grateful to be entrusted by parents to care for their children, and to have the opportunity to do something that I love every day."

  • Markus Boos, MD, PhD is an attending pediatric dermatologist at Seattle Children's Hospital and is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Pediatrics at the University of Washington School of Medicine.

    Dr. Boos was raised in the suburbs of Detroit and received a BA in Biology and Economics from Kalamazoo College in Kalamazoo, MI. He subsequently joined the Medical Scientist Training Program at the University of Chicago, where he obtained his MD and a PhD degree in Immunology. He completed an internship in Pediatrics at the University of Chicago's Comer Children's Hospital before joining the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania as a Dermatology resident. There he served as chief resident during his final year before completing a fellowship in Pediatric Dermatology at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.

    Dr. Boos enjoys caring for all children with skin disorders but has a special interest in primary cutaneous lymphoma and the skin manifestations of immunodeficiency.

    As a gay father, Markus enjoys spending free time with his children. When he is not at work, he also enjoys reading, running and swimming. He cheers for his Detroit Red Wings, the San Antonio Spurs and has adopted the Seahawks as his pro football team.

    Dr. Boos, like all of Seattle Children's Hospital, values diversity and welcomes all patients and their families, regardless of race, ethnicity, religion or sexual orientation. Our clinic is a safe space for everyone.
