Dr. Alan Durkin’s Journey

Dr. Durkin earned every single bit of recognition he has received through hard work and displays of extraordinary talent. He fought to graduate magna cum laude from the University of Miami, where he obtained his undergraduate degree in biology. Afterward, he transferred to the University of Chicago where he received an M.S. in physics, allowing him to round his education. When he was finished, he decided to enroll in medical school at the University of South Florida Morsani College of Medicine. There he gained the foundation of knowledge he would need to pursue his calling in plastic and reconstructive surgery. 

After receiving his medical degree, Dr. Durking entered into a 10-year integrated general and plastic surgery residency at the University of South Florida. The program was extremely difficult, fast-paced, and demanding, but he thrived, gaining the skills he needed to become a nationally renowned surgeon. He went on to complete a complex general surgical oncology fellowship, where he studied tumors and cancer treatments before entering into personal practice. The process of learning and his career in academia never stopped. He still works in clinical studies involving facial and breast surgery. He publishes research papers, and he was named Clinical Assistant Professor of Plastic Surgery at both Florida State University and Nova Southeastern University.
