Hi Laurelyn, Great question! Personally, I find it challenging to prioritize when I'm overwhelmed with a lot of work due at the same time. I've found that it helps me to talk to your boss to figure out where you should prioritize your time and what deadlines are most important. You can also talk with your colleagues at work and get their advice.
Best of luck in your career!
Alyssa recommends the following next steps:
After medical school, getting in to a dermatology residency is another hurdle. Only the top students can expect to be accepted.
In general being a physician can be stressful, especially when the patients have an incurable illness. After years of education and training the feeling of helplessness can be devastating.
4 years of medical school
1 year internship (usually in internal medicine)
3 years of derm residency
This is a competive field. You would have to be at the top of your med school class to match into dermatology.
