As a young child, Carol Hollan was intrigued with both art and science. By age six, she was checking out library books on anatomy and physiology, and drawing people 'to make them look better.' A family friend, noticing her talents, suggested she become either a medical illustrator or plastic surgeon. Carol set her sights on medical school at a tender age and never waivered.
Carol attended Florida Presbyterian College and the University of Florida College of Medicine, graduating from medical school in 1973. She then trained in internal medicine and opened a private practice in Potsdam, New York, where she became board-certified in family practice. Although she very much enjoyed familiy practice, she continued to pursue her goal of becoming a plastic surgeon.
Dr. Hollan moved to California in 1977 to complete an internship in general surgery, a residency in orthopedic surgery, and a final residency in plastic surgery at UCSD's School of Medicine in 1983. She then opened her private practice, becoming the first female plastic surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery in San Diego County. She also became a fellow of the American College of Surgeons (FACS).
Dr. Hollan continuously updates her professional knowledge and skills by frequently attending conferences and seminars. She is equally as diligent in her personal growth and development, and continues to be involved with The Stream's "Living with Reality" programs.
She maintains privileges at Sharp Memorial Hospital, Mary Birch Hospital for Women, and Scripps Memorial Hospital.
