Abstract

BACKGROUND: There are many routes to obtaining training in dermasurgery. OBJECTIVE: The objective is to discuss some considerations that may guide selection of dermasurgery training. METHODS: Current training options are reviewed. RESULTS: Some considerations that may guide selection of type of dermasurgery training include: (1) individual temperament; (2) the subtype of dermasurgery in which training is desired (Mohs, cosmetic surgery, laser); (3) family and geographic factors; (4) preference for private practice versus academic career; and (5) proportion of future practice to be devoted to dermasurgery. CONCLUSIONS: There are a growing number of training choices for budding dermasurgeons, with multiple options available for each set of particular circumstances.
