Dermatopathology

The objective of this one-year ACGME accredited fellowship is to prepare dermatologists and pathologists for careers in academic dermatopathology. The fellow receives extensive training in dermatopathology during sign-out of routine cases, cases sent in consultation and through their participation in numerous teaching conferences.

During the fellowship, those trained as dermatologists receive training in anatomic pathology, and those previously trained in pathology are exposed to clinical dermatology in one of the leading Dermatology departments in the world. Additional training may include oral pathology, cytologic studies and molecular biology.
