But I didn't know anything about moles, and so I pretended to be a big shot and used my 'Dr. Basch' title to get her to the derm clinic that morning, and the resident in derm slobbered all over himself because he would get to look at her mons and panties instead of the usual excoriated psoriatic lesions of the gomers and he took a little biopsy of it and within twenty-four hours he told her it was just a mole and completely benign and she was not going to die.

Dermatology, often shortened to derm, is a specialty of medicine. Doctors who have specialized in dermatology have generally done four years of college, four years of medical school, one year of a medical/surgical internship, and three years of dermatology residency. Board-certified dermatologists are the only physicians with advanced medical training to diagnose and treat skin, hair, and nail conditions. They can also perform surgical procedures like biopsies, Mohs surgery to remove cancer, and complex wound reconstruction. Dermatology is widely considered to be the most competitive and most sought-after specialty among top medical students.
