Dermatologist internships are available for undergraduate or medical students interested in gaining hands-on experience in the field of dermatology.
Who is a Dermatologist?
Dermatologists treat skin, nail, and hair problems, as well as the mucous membranes that form the inner lining of the eyelids, nose, and mouth.
They assist patients of all ages in dealing with diseases such as skin cancer, psoriasis, eczema, dermatitis, and acne.
Dermatologists may also provide cosmetic treatments such as lasers and fillers to help hide scars and wrinkles, eliminate excess hair, and generally improve a patient’s appearance.
About Dermatologist Internship
The internship is for undergraduate students interested in gaining experience in dermatology. These undergraduate internships do not involve patient care and instead focus on research or data entry.
Dermatologists are typically employed in medical offices rather than hospitals. They can work as solo practitioners or as part of a group practice.
