How do I get my foot in the door with derm faculty not in my university?

Recommended Posts

I'm an incoming medical student curious about the field of dermatology but not attending one of the Ontario medical schools with a derm residency program. What are some tips for starting connections with faculty members in these residency programs? Would I cold email them with the intent of working on research with them? Or should I try to schedule observerships first? Are there ways to build long-term relationships with these faculty despite the distance? And lastly, would there be any benefit in connecting with dermatologists in my own university?

Please go easy on me. I am quite clueless about this, so any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Talk with your school's faculty (the people who usually meet with students and give advice) and upper years. Usually they will give you advice on establishing a working relationship with someone, or put you in contact with someone that does.
