    It will be necessary to determine if this is actually an approved residency or merely a money making idea by dermatologists or others,if it is not approved you will not be eligible for board certification by the American Board of Dermatology,failure to complete an approved residency will make it difficult to recognized as a dermatologist by insurance plans or HMOs.It may also present medico-legal problems if you practice a specialty after training in this manner.On the other hand there have been some approved osteopathic training programs which are not hospital based but are oriented around private practices.These would make certification by the appropriate osteopathic board possible and avoid the problems I have outlined.
