Well, how old would you be when you start?

Medical school will be 5-6 years depending on if you intercalate.
Then you have 2 years of foundation training.
Then you need to do at least the first 2 years of Internal Medicine Training.
Then you have 4 years of Higher Dermatology Training.

In between each of these steps you might take time out to do further study or you might have to Locum or work in a Clinical Fellow role as entry at each stage is competitive and you might not get a job. So the quickest you can possibly do it is 13 years but most people will take several more years than that. I’ve met one or two people who have raced through training and become Consultants at age 32 or so, but realistically most people are in their late 30s or older by the time they become a Consultant

Assuming you start medicine when you're 18 and you're on a five year degree...

18-23: medical school
23-25: Foundation years 1 and 2
25-27: IMT years 1 and 2
27-31: ST3-ST6 dermatology

Dermatology is a very competitive specialty so you may need to take some time out in order to buff your CV to improve your chances of getting an ST3 registrar post. You may also want to complete fellowships or work less than full time for various reasons, so whilst you could complete your training at age 31, that doesn't necessarily mean you will.
