Dermatology is the branch of Internal Medicine concerned with the health of the skin, hair, and nails. Dermatologists are medical physicians with the highest training and expertise in this field, and they usually combine several activities like seeing patients in public hospital clinics and/or in private practices, teaching, acting as consultants to other specialists, and delving into clinical or basic research. Dermatologists must have expertise in basic sciences including pathology, microbiology, biochemistry, physics, endocrinology, and physiology. As skin diseases are often associated with internal conditions, they must be familiar with all the other medical specialties.
