What is a dermatologist?
Dermatologists are specialist physicians whom, after completing medical school, receive specialty training in the diagnosis and treatment of skin disease and the maintenance of skin health, including cosmetic and laser procedures. Dermatologists in Canada have a minimum of 5 additional years of supervised training and are required to sit and pass a rigorous multiday oral and written examination before being allowed to use the specialty designation FRCPC (Fellow of the Royal College of Canada).
Providers without specialized training often join societies and advertise their membership in these societies as a replacement for training. Do not be fooled. Only specialists are allowed to use the designation FRCPC (or FRCSC for surgeons). There are many inexperienced providers out there with limited training and experience. Trust the experience and expertise at SkinfitMD.
