Abstract: BACKGROUND: Training procedures for dermatology residents have never been evaluated in French university hospitals. The present study describes the methods used over the last 5 years. METHODS: This was a retrospective survey using a questionnaire sent to French dermatology-residents completing their residency between 2005 and 2010. The data collated included information on theoretical aspects (courses, local, regional or national seminars, meetings) and on practical training (consultations, surgery, laser and cosmetic dermatology), research, post-residency assistantship and additional university diplomas, as well as overall opinions on dermatology training. Statistical analysis was descriptive and comparative according to the number of dermatology teachers (professors, senior lecturers) in the region in which training was given. RESULTS: One hundred and twenty-two questionnaires were analyzed: 72 from regions with two or less than two university hospital dermatology teachers (group 1) and 50 with more than two such teachers (group 2). Fewer residents had completed a research year in group 1 (19% vs 40%; P=0.01), but the two groups were comparable concerning post-graduate training (DESC) (16%) or post-residency (87%) placement. There were no differences concerning local theoretical training or participation in seminars or meetings, apart from inter-regional seminars, which were more frequent in group 2 (24% vs 3%; P<0.001). There were no differences between the two groups in terms of personal consultations (91%), surgery (62%), laser treatment (13%) or cosmetic dermatology (3%). Satisfaction rates regarding theoretical and practical training were similar in both groups (69% vs 70% and 72% vs 78%, respectively). DISCUSSION: This is the first survey carried out with the aim of evaluating suitability of training for dermatology residents in France with regard to the “reference” dermatological practice recently submitted to the French health ministry. The present results, obtained from 47% of residents receiving training during this period, show only very few differences concerning dermatology residency training with respect to the number of university hospital dermatology teachers, apart from research training. CONCLUSION: Despite an overall good opinion on their residency, the dermatology residents involved underlined the need for greater focus on teaching of technical skills (surgery, laser, cosmetic dermatology).
