Dermatology - MAC exclusion report September 2009

There is evidenced room for growth within dermatology, however WRT does not recommend any changes to training numbers until there is more clarity about future service configuration and therefore workforce requirements. The specialty states that there has been limited interest in posts from overseas with most candidates not fulfilling the dermatology training requirements. Therefore, WRT do not believe the use of overseas recruitment is a sensible mechanism for alleviating shortages within the profession and suggest the removal of consultant dermatologists from the shortage occupation list.
