I'm looking to apply to dermatology for the upcoming year, and I'm trying to get a feel for what kind of programs there are out there. I've browsed this board and the dermboard quite a bit to try and find answers specifically from residents or those who have graduated from programs, but is seems there is little to be found. While many are quick to criticize their programs anonymously (not that you can blame them) for the faults in their programs, from overall lack of teaching and relative overwork of the residents to un-enthused faculty, I really haven't been able to find any feedback on specific programs. The same goes for programs that people seem very satisfied with. I realized the extremely competitive nature of derm makes it tough to even be able to select one's own place of residency, but it would be nice to have a program to be shooting for in terms of an away rotation or two. If any residents have any feedback to give either openly, anonymously, or privately for specific programs, it would be greatly appreciated. The factors I am looking for are the faculty's competency and level of enthusiasm for teaching, work hours vs teaching hours, and overall impression of experience along with any other important factors I might be missing. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.
