The health care industry is thriving, and the U.S. Department of Labor predicts that employment for physicians will grow faster than the average for all careers from 2018 to 2028. The field of dermatology is expected to expand for a number of reasons. New technologies, medicines, and treatments continue to be developed at a rapid pace. Another factor in the growth of this industry is that the average age of the American population is rising, and older people require more skin-related health care.

The public is also much more aware of the benefits of good general and dermatological health.
