Dermatologists diagnose and treat more than 3,000 skin, hair, and nail conditions and diseases. Becoming a dermatologist requires at least eight years of education, an internship, a dermatology residency and 12,000 to 16,000 hours of patient care. After residency, dermatologists can become board-certified. Board-certified dermatologists have the training and expertise to provide the best possible skin, hair, and nail outcomes for patients.
