    Do Dermatology away rotations require Letters of Rec to apply?

    Very simple question but I can't seem to find an answer. I am trying to schedule my home dermatology rotation and would like to know how late I can do so based on the possibility of needing a letter from them for my away rotation. Thanks so much!

    Do dermatology aways require letters of recommendation?

    Hey all, pretty straight forward question that I can't find the answer to. Any advice about Dermatology aways and when to schedule them would be great as well. Thanks so much!

    Does the medical school you attend matter when it comes to matching into competitive specialities?

    I am interested in possibly applying to some of the more competitive specialities (ophthalmology or dermatology) for residency. I was wondering if the prestige of the medical school I attend has an effect on my chances of matching (assuming I have good step scores).

    Position Wanted Looking for PGY-2 in Dermatology and research with stipend

    I am a preliminary general surgery candidate focused on acquiring a residency position in dermatology. I am an applicant this year through ERAS and may match (I hope so!). However, I have a dearth of dermatology research. Whether I match into a 2019 PGY-2 spot or not, I would like to pursue...

    Opinion wanted: M3 what are my chances for dermatology with a couples match?

    I'm a third year medical student with a Step 1 score of 256, GPA 4.0, and some volunteering. I haven't done any research before because I wasn't sure what I wanted to do and didn't think my Step 1 score was going to be competitive enough for Derm. I'm willing to put in time to get research in...

    Came across this gem of a web site http://www.advancedskinofoc.com/about/ Dr. Lauber is a board certified Jewish Dermatologist. More importantly, he is a real Medical Doctor, and not an inferiorly educated or inferiorly trained DO or Osteopathic doctor. According to Yelp, his patients love...

I could entertain other locations as well. Reason for swapping is purely for geographic and I'm happy to explain more privately. Derm...

    Academic Orthopaedic surgery vs Academic dermatology

    MS3 here. So before you start judging why I am choosing between 2 of the highest paid/most competitive specialties (And I wonder about that myself all the time, too). Here is a little about me: 1) MD/PhD, PhD in bone metabolism. Would love to continue basic science research in some way in the...

    DO derm residency/TRI options

    So with having to apply to derm as a PGY1, it seems like the options are very limited if you don't end up matching. Does anyone know, can you only scramble into other PGY2 positions that also require a TRI (rads, pm&r, etc)? Or could you scramble, for example, into a PGY2 family medicine position?

    Looking for a worthwhile away rotation?

    When I was a med student, I wasted my time at other departments doing away rotations. I didn't know that some programs are notoriously nepotistic or just don't interview their rotators. A major point of doing an away rotation is to increase your odds of getting an interview and matching, after...
