The path to becoming a dermatologist is rigorous. It begins with a 4-year degree and a thorough vetting process to apply to a medical school. Once accepted to medical school, candidates matriculate through a variety of difficult coursework for 4 years. Then it’s on to a one-year residency. Future dermatologists must then complete a dermatology residency for a minimum of 3 years. Many of our doctors have specialized training, certifications, fellowships, and other advanced education on their resumes. It’s all part of their dedication to their field and specialty.
The next step in the process of becoming a first-rate dermatologist is board certification. When locating a doctor for you or your child, it’s important to look for a physician who is board certified. The American Board of Dermatology (ABD) is one specialty certified by the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS). Boards work collaboratively to set the standards for physicians to receive and maintain board-certification status. The ABD is an independent, non-profit organization. The initials FAAD or the words “board-certified” after the doctor’s name indicate board certification.
The dermatologist’s job includes caring for skin, hair, nails, and mucous membranes of the nose and mouth. They see patients of all ages from newborn to over 100 years of age.
