About Career as a Dermatologist

A dermatologist is a physician trained to treat diseases and conditions of the skin, on any part of the body. Dermatologists can treat anything from a fungus or bacterial infection of the skin, to various types of cancer. Dermatologists remove cancerous or unhealthy lesions from the skin, in a minor outpatient surgical procedure.

In addition to medical treatment of skin conditions, dermatologists may also do aesthetic, elective procedures for patients who wish to improve skin tone and decrease signs of aging. Some of these aesthetic treatments may include laser treatment, botox injections, or collagen injections.

Career Prospects of Career as a Dermatologist

You’ve probably never heard of an emergency mole removal, and that is one of the many reasons dermatology is such a desirable field in which to practice: quality of life. Dermatologists do not have to cover hospital patients on a rigorous call schedule like some other types of physicians do. Sure, there may be complications from an office procedure, or other issues that may arise, but dermatologists handle much fewer emergency calls and situations than physicians in other high-paying specialties.

Compensation is another great “plus” for being a dermatologist. In addition to attracting well-insured patients due to the nature of the specialty not being one that caters to acute care or very sick patients. Dermatologists can set prices and get paid in cash for any aesthetic and elective procedures they provide, allowing them to boost the cash flow of their practice, without having to wait for insurance companies to reimburse them a measly percentage of a fee.

These aesthetic procedures may include botox or collagen injections, minor plastic surgery, and other procedures which serve to beautify rather than cure.
