In descending order, I'd say the greatest threats to the field of dermatology are:

1. oversupply of derms
2. obamacare

i'd reverse #1 and 2 above, and add "BEARS" to the list. there's so much more demand than supply in most areas right now that oversupply problems are neither certain nor in the near future.
