Dermatology Training

United Kingdom
Dermatology is a medical branch dealing with skin, nails, hair and its diseases. A dermatologist treats diseases, in the widest sense, and some cosmetic problems of the skin, scalp, hair, and nails.

In the UK, a dermatologist is a medically qualified practitioner who has gone on to specialize in medicine and then sub-specialize in dermatology. This involves:
•  Medical school for five years to obtain an MBBS, MBBCh or MB, BChir degree
•  One year of house jobs before becoming fully registered as a medical practitioner
•  Two to three years training in general medicine to obtain a higher degree in medicine and become a member of the Royal College of Physicians
•  Having obtained the MRCP examination, applying to become a Specialty Registrar (StR) in Dermatology and training for four years in dermatology
•  Passing the Specialty Certificate Examination (SCE) in Dermatology before the end of training

Upon successful completion of the four-year training period, the doctor becomes an accredited dermatologist and is able to apply for a consultant hospital post as a consultant dermatologist.
