Dermatologists are medical doctors who have completed a 4 year medical school (leading to an M.D. or a D.O.), a 1 year internship in medicine, surgery, or some other general medical training, and a 3 year residency specializing in Dermatology.
Nurse Practitioners (NPs) are registered professional nurses who are prepared, through advanced graduate education and clinical training, to provide a wide range of health care services including the diagnosis and treatment of various medical conditions. In order to practice in Ohio, a nurse practitioner must have licensure both as a Registered Nurse and as a Nurse Practitioner. Also, she must have a Master’s Degree in Nursing with an emphasis on the role of nurse practitioner, and be nationally board certified. In Kate’s case, she has almost 10 years of experience in Dermatology, including initial training at OSU Division of Dermatology, following her nursing education at Case Western Reserve University.
