We surveyed 107 chairs and chiefs of US dermatology programs regarding demographic and educational factors. Of the 69 (64%) participants who returned completed surveys, 59 (86%) were men and 10 (14%) were women. We compared our data from chairs and chiefs to the US dermatology workforce and found that the chairs and chiefs were significantly more likely to be older men who were board certified in other fields, trained in dermatopathology, and specialized in Mohs micrographic surgery (P< .001). Many chairs and chiefs also actively participated in research and held advanced degrees in addition to doctor of medicine.
