  • Medical school, becoming a medical doctor (MD) or doctor of osteopathic medicine (DO).
  • Internship, 1 year of required medical training.
  • An accredited dermatology residency program, at least 3 years.

  • Having a license to practice medicine.
  • Passing the exams given by the American Board of Dermatology, the American Osteopathic Association, or the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.
