No chances what so ever, there is really tough competetion among american graduates, so for foreign graduates have almost no chance, this is the link to the profile of the person who did manage to get it but but he did research fellowship in dermatology, but no one knows how much of connections he had to get that residency!!

Nothing is impossible but you should know your potentials!! so think before going for dermatology!

You are kidding yourself if you plan to match into dermatology as an IMG unless the program director is your inlaw. It doesn't matter what your score is or your research, it just ain't gonna happen. At my school, we usually have around 1 person matching into dermatology each year, and some years none. And we have our own dermatology residency program.
