Drs. Shilpi Khetarpal and Mara Weinstein Velez are two of the three talented dermatologists who recently joined SkinCare Physicians’ Fellowship program to gain valuable, hands-on experience. While Dr. Khetarpal was born in London, Dr. Weinstein Velez was raised on the island of Guam in the Western Pacific where she was exposed to tropical dermatology and diverse skin types at a very young age. Dr. Khetarpal completed her undergraduate and medical education in seven years, earning a combined BS/MD degree, while Dr. Weinstein Velez joined Teach for America and taught high-school chemistry before going to medical school. What did they have in common before joining the SkinCare Physicians family? They both completed their dermatology residency at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation. In her free time, you’ll find Dr. Khetarpal around Boston at various spinning and yoga studios, looking for the best coffee shop or restaurant, or trying out new tech gadgets. She also loves travelling. Out of work, Dr. Weinstein Velez enjoys spending time with her husband and daughter, taking zumba or barre classes, or being island-bound for a long trip home!
