Do I need to still attend medical school to fulfill a career as a Dermatologist?

I've done some research but haven't found a definite answer if medical schooling is a requirement to become a Dermatologist. I love skin care products, and it's my dream to create my own line to help people feel confident in their own skin. -school #dermatology #skin-care-products #science #hospital-and-health-care #medicine

Richard’s Answer

Dermatologists are physicians.

In the US, to apply to medical school, you need a bachelor's degree. Any 4-year university should suffice.

Apply to medical schools during your last year of college.

Medical school takes 4 years to complete.

After medical school complete a 4-year residency for specialty training.

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.
