Michael Cashman, MD, MHA
Dr. Michael Cashman is from Washington, DC. He majored in French at Vassar College prior to studying medicine at the George Washington University (GWU) School of Medicine & Health Sciences. After completing his medical internship at Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx, he first learned about Occupational Medicine treating occupational dermatitis patients in dermatology residency. His endless pursuit of knowledge led to graduate studies in health administration at GWU Milken Institute School of Public Health culminating in work experiences outside of clinical medicine in education and industry before joining the OEM Residency at University of Washington.
Dr. Cashman is most interested in occupational contact dermatitis, how our skin interacts with the myriad environments in which we thrive, and what role the cutaneous microbiome plays when toxicity occurs as a result of xenobiotic (e.g., personal care product) metabolism at the epithelial surface and the relationship this has in promoting or suppressing various skin diseases. For fun, he enjoys cooking, playing volleyball, and outdoor activities with his two dogs, Dexter and Dixie.
