How should I plan out my college path if I want to be a dermatologist?

I am starting to plan for college and I don’t really know where to start. I’m not sure what I should study for my bachelors degree and or what type of schools to go to in order to start my college path. Also, I keep hearing different things when it comes to how med school for dermatology would work which isn’t making this easier.

Amalya’s Answer

It would be great to try an internship in medicine, especially in the field of dermatology. It will help you get practical experience and make a better decision whether you really like the discipline or not.
What refers to medical schools, try to find ones (via the internet) which specialize in dermatology and have good reputation.
All the best and good luck in your university applications.

A. Michelle’s Answer

Let’s assume you do decide to pursue a career in dermatology. To gain admittance to medical school, you will don’t need to major in pre-med or pursue any specific major in undergrad, but you will need to complete coursework in mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology, organic chemistry, anatomy, and English. To prepare for these college-level courses, you should take the most challenging math and science courses you can in high school. Medical school admission is competitive, so you will need top marks in these courses as well as evidence of leadership and volunteer work or research to make the cut.
