OP, there's something you're forgetting. I don't care if my dermatologist is a brainlet. Just as long as the cardiologist that works next door isn't. Some things are easier and less important than others.
sad to say it OP, child prodigies are hard to find. Most of the people who hit higher I.Q. at adulthood are late bloomers who never got picked up by their schoolsystem in the first place.
Too many friends couldn't figure shit out and got put in remedial classes, which isn't bad for their learning but the people in those classes treated each other like shit even the teacher.
those people now know all kinds of shit about the economy and how to build fucking houses and stuff, I'm sure plenty of them could be doctors but they never got the A's while they were still developing. No one's going to pay for their shit now.
Being a doctor isn't all about memorization. If you have something memorized too well all you need is one thing to be off one day and the whole routine breaks down. Intelligence comes from competence, and part of competence is memorizing what you need to progress in what you want because you know what you're doing.
Enjoy your misdiagnosed and mismanaged stevens-johnson syndrome / toxic epidermal necrolysis. Or cutaneous T cell lymphoma. Or melanoma. Etc.
Everybody disrespects dermatology until they need it.
