Jason’s Answer

Dermatology is a specialty in the Medical profession. Therefore you would be required to fulfill all of the steps to get into medical school, complete medical school, a few years of internship/residency. Then you would go for a specialty fellowship in dermatology.

So as far as skills:
determination
intelligence
patience
good at hard science
analytical mind.

best of luck!
