Dermatologists are specialist medical doctors that treat skin rashes and diseases, hair loss and nail conditions using both medical and surgical interventions. The average training period for a dermatologist is 11-12 years. This includes 7 years to qualify as a medical doctor, 4 years to specialize in dermatology and time spent studying other aspects of dermatology, like laser therapy and cosmetic dermatology.
