This program provides a one year theoretical and practical educational experience in dermatopathology. Fellows coming from a pathology residency will spend 50% of their time in clinical dermatology and those from dermatology will focus on pathology in a similar time frame to insure a comprehensive knowledge base in both disciplines.

Training will also include the use of special staining techniques, electron microscopy, immunofluorescence and immunohistochemistry. There is a large diversity of in house as well as consult material. The trainee will have graduated responsibility and will be expected to be active in teaching conferences. Research is strongly encouraged through a variety of ongoing projects in both pathology and dermatology.

“I have been interested in Dermatopathology since I was a PGY1 resident. I like all aspects of dermatopathology starting with the clinical presentation to histologic examination and molecular testing.  I am very eager to learn and being a fellow at UW will provide me with enough exposure and experience to be the best dermatopathologist I can be. I am also very interested in teaching residents and medical students."
