Dermatologists

Tips for Entry

Try to schedule a tour of a dermatologist's office. When making the appointment, explain that you are interested in a dermatology career and ask if you could set up an information interview with the doctor.

Volunteer in a hospital, clinic, or even nursing home to gain exposure to a health care environment, acquire practical experience, and gauge how well you like working in the medical field.
