The field of Dermatology offers a wide range of career options, including general office-based practice, an academic appointment with basic science, clinical, or epidemiological research, dermatologic surgery/procedural dermatology, pediatric dermatology, and dermatopathology. Dermatologists care for patients of all ages with both acute and chronic skin diseases as well as for patients with dermatologic manifestations of systemic disease. A strong preparation in internal medicine is advised; some surgical experience may enhance the experience but is not required.
