Washington—Pediatric dermatology is coming of age. The American Board of Pediatrics and American Board of Dermatology have devised a new 5-year training program for this subspecialty. It calls for 1 to 2 years' residency in pediatrics, 2 years in dermatology, and 1 to 2 years in a combined residency. Board certification will be offered in pediatric dermatology, perhaps as soon as 2003.
The collaborative program will strengthen training of specialists who deal with skin disorders that are unique to children or that differ in their presentation in children and adults, said Bernard Cohen, MD, of Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, president of the Society for Pediatric Dermatology. It also will streamline entry into the profession, he said. About 500 US physicians currently are members of the society (which has a Web site at http://www.spdnet.org/). More than half work in academic settings. Of this group, many have board certification in both specialties.
