Alyssa’s Answer

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!

Long hours studying. Getting into medical school requries good grades. At the medical school I attended, the average GPA is reported to be 3.85, so even one or two B's can hurt your chances of acceptance.

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.

Estelle’s Answer

Dermatologists require the following training:
College Degree
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.

My sister (who is a dermatologist) finds the prescription prior authorizations and dealing with insurance claims to be frustrating in private practice.

The most challenging part of my job is the continuous learning process. In my line of work, you have to keep adapting and figuring out how each client uses their software differently.
