Abstract

We present perspectives from four fourth year medical students who matched into dermatology that highlight the factors they believed helped them most. The purpose is to offer advice to medical students interested in dermatology. We divide the paper into four areas of discussion: academics, extracurricular activities, research, and mentorship. All four factors are crucial for a strong dermatology application. We believe the paper provides valuable suggestions and guidance to students considering a career in dermatology.
