She received her medical degree from Harvard Medical School and was awarded numerous grants and fellowships for medical research. During her time at Harvard, she was also the recipient of the American Medical Association Physicians of Tomorrow Award as well as their Leadership Award.

Dr. Hu completed her medical internship at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York, caring for patients with a life-threatening illness and continuing to pursue her burgeoning interest in medical dermatology. She then went on to complete her dermatology residency at New York University in the Ronald O. Perelman Department of Dermatology. During her residency at NYU, Dr. Hu was awarded the Husik Prize for the best research paper, as well as the George Lipkin Prize, identified by the faculty as the resident who is an excellent clinician with scholarly interest and research productivity.

Given her comprehensive training, Dr. Hu has cultivated special interests in adult and pediatric dermatology, as well as cosmetic dermatology and dermatopathology, all of which she currently practices at Metro Dermatology.

Over the years I was struggling with my skin issues, and I had went through quite a few doctors—finally a few friends of mine told me about Metro Dermatology, & I made an appointment with Dr.Stephanie Hu - what an amazing doctor, best experience ever, under her treatment my 20 year old issues are finally almost at an end. She really cares about her patients. Also the front desk had wonderful people, always greeting patients as they come in, they always listen to patient’s problems and try to solve them, both mine and the other patients I’ve seen. Also, I’ve never had to wait too long here—waiting time is minimal.
