Procedural dermatology positions increased over recent 10-year period

November 2, 2017

There was a large increase in procedural dermatology positions over a recent 10-year period, according to recent findings; however, this increase coincided with stagnation in dermatopathology.

Because of shortages in the dermatologic workforce reported in recent years, the researchers evaluated trends in dermatology and dermatopathology residency and fellowship programs. They assessed past and current versions of the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education for information on residency and fellowship programs in dermatology, along with the number of individuals participating in these programs. Data from the 2006 to 2007 and 2015 to 2016 academic years underwent analysis, as did U.S. Census Bureau population data for 2006 through 2015.
