In some circles, there’s a persistent knock on our specialty: We are somehow not “real” doctors. You’ve heard this, I’m sure. Admit it: It hurts your feelings. I mean, c’mon, we went through the same 4 years of med school and 4 years of residency as our dermatology colleagues, and nobody talks about them that way. It’s just not fair.Some of this stems from our ability as a specialty to function outside of most of the rest of medicine.
