Dermatologists are medical professionals that specialize in skin care. They see patients, diagnose ailments and even perform surgeries like lesion removal for the treatment of cancer. Dermatologists may be employed by a hospital or have their own practice. Typically well-paid, dermatologists must undergo years of education before obtaining the job and have an extensive knowledge of medicine. Some dermatologists also serve as researchers, studying the way skin reacts to certain treatments and developing new ways to combat disease. Similar positions include Medical Assistant Dermatology jobs.
Dermatology Educational Requirements
To become a fully certified dermatologist, a doctoral degree is required. Many dermatologists in training take internships at clinics and gain experience while in school, completing a residency at various hospitals afterward. In addition to an extensive medical education, dermatologists must be skilled at interacting with patients, know how to be empathetic to their needs and have a strong stomach. The ability to remain cool under pressure is a plus as dermatologists are sometimes required to deliver bad news about a diagnosis to families. Dermatologists must always study new developments in their field and keep an eye on potential new treatments as medical science makes new breakthroughs.
Dermatology Job Market
Like any job in the medical field, the demand for dermatologists is high. The amount of competition is lower due to the high barriers of entry. There are currently over 348,900 dermatologists employed, and that number is projected to grow by 19 percent by 2022 to over 414,200. The job market is not likely to diminish as the need for medical professionals continues to grow.
Dermatologists in residency make much less than those who are fully certified. The average annual pay for a resident dermatologist is between $49,000 and $58,000, depending upon the hospital. For a dermatologist who has their own practice, the pay can range from $100,000 to $500,000 a year. However, in addition to the salary comes expenses like malpractice insurance and other necessary fees for doctors.
