I've seen it said in this forum that the field of dermatology requires a lot of researchers. I want to find out why that's the case since I'm trying to get a spot at Stanford derm during my gap year. Do derms churn out more papers relative to other specialties? Is the large amount of research due to the number of diseases that they encounter, a low number of existing therapies, or because the field is relatively new? Thanks in advance for your thoughts.
