If I want to do dermatology, how does it work if I do MRCPCH and if I did ST1/2 paediatrics?

Paediatricians who complete level 1 training are eligible to apply for dermatology ST3, but you must have at least 12 months of post-foundation training in adult general medicine.

im considering doing ST1 then going into dermatology... would it be advisable to just do CMT1/CMT2 and MRCP instead to avoid any issues having done paediatric route.

Derm without MRCP - that is super interesting.

Still have the LP and pleural tap requirements somehow though :laugh:

AFAIK the majority of paediatric dermatologists that I work with (mainly when anaesthetising EB patients) have MRCP and completed medicine/dermatology training, but paediatric dermatology is a recognised subspecialty of paediatrics (also possible via a post-CCT dermatology fellowship)

That's entirely up to you - it depends on your motivation for doing paeds first and whether you want to be a paediatric dermatologist or an adult one.
