Why see a dermatologist?

You can only become a dermatologist after acquiring a basic medical degree, gaining general experience in clinical practice and then undergoing at least four years of intensive hospital based training. During this time the trainee dermatologist is educated in all aspects of skin disease. They have to publish research articles as well as develop their clinical and surgical skills. Only after passing rigorous written and clinical examinations are they awarded their specialist qualification. Learn more here
