To be a board-certified Dermatologist in the U.S., you must have a valid license to practice medicine*, and have completed one year of general medical training, followed by three years of a Dermatology Residency.

*To obtain a Medical License in the US, you must have graduated from an accredited Medical School (either MD or DO in the US), pass all three "Steps" of the United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE) and/or the Comprehensive Osteopathic Medical Licensing Examination (COMLEX), and successfully match into and complete a Dermatology Residency (arguably one of the most difficult specialties to match into). Most U.S. medical schools require a Bachelors degree with a strong background in the sciences (though not necessarily a major in the sciences, so long as the prerequisite courses are completed) and the Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT) for admission.
