    I believe I have a chance, but undergrad was a rocky road

    Hello everyone, I am currently going through an existential crisis and have no idea what I want to do with my life. While I was an undergrad, I was really dead-set on either going to dental, medical, or PA school, but due to toxic relationships, problems with my family, and mental health...

    Can path-trained dermatopathologists function as dermatologists as well?

    Let's say a pathologist went on to do a dermatopathology fellowship, could said dermatopathologist function as a dermatologist as well? For example, could they do their own biopsies, skin cancer screenings, get patient interaction, etc.?

    Could teledermatology help with clinical efficiency?

    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).
