Well right now I am only in high school but wanted an overview on the steps to becoming a dermatologist. I know I can do it as I am quite smart, only thing I fear is my procrastination or laziness will get in the way. However I am just wondering what are the steps? I know you have to go through 4 year undergrad program, then 4 years med school but after that to become a dermatologist what do you have to do? Like how many years of residency, I have heard it is 5 but I have also heard it is 3? Can someone just explain the whole process thanks?
