Now Professor-Emeritus in the School of Medicine at Stanford University, Dr. Bauer is the immediate past Vice President for Medical Affairs of Stanford University and dean of the School of Medicine (1995-2001). An academic dermatologist, who received the M.D. degree from Northwestern University in 1967, Dr. Bauer served a straight medical internship at Barnes Hospital, St. Louis, Missouri. He was a resident and research fellow in dermatology at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis from 1968 through 1972. Following two years in the United States Navy, he returned to Washington University in 1974 to join the faculty of the School of Medicine, where he progressed to the rank of Professor of Medicine (Dermatology) and served as Director of the Center for Research and Therapy of Epidermolysis Bullosa.

 

In 1988 Dr. Bauer became Chair of the Department of Dermatology at Stanford University School of Medicine, a position he held for 7 years.

In 1995, Dr. Bauer became Dean of the Stanford University School of Medicine, and two years later he was also appointed Vice President for Medical Affairs of Stanford University. In these positions, Dr. Bauer was responsible on behalf of Stanford University for all financial and strategic activities of the School of Medicine, the Stanford University Hospital, the Faculty Practice, and the Lucile Packard Children's Hospital.
