Should Dermatology Applicants be Limited to 20 Programs?

 Authors from the University of Utah present their case for limiting dermatology applications to 20 per applicant. Although this plan has not been implemented, this year the majority of dermatology programs are participating in a supplemental application process that includes “preference signaling.” Nonetheless, medical students planning to apply to dermatology programs in the future may be interested in this article:” Limiting Residency Applications to Dermatology Benefits Nearly Everyone,” J Clin Aesthet Dermatol 2021;14(7)30-32. The journal may even be interested in timely correspondence related to this proposal.
