Dermatopathology Fellowship

Dermatopathology Fellowship

Next Opening 2022-2023

The Department of Pathology, in conjunction with the Department of Dermatology, offers an ACGME-accredited, one-year fellowship in dermatopathology with emphasis on diagnostic dermatopathology.  The program is well balanced and provides broad exposure to all areas of dermatopathology, including inflammatory dermatoses and cutaneous oncology.  Pathology-trained fellows spend half of each day during an eight month period of their training rotating in the Dermatology Clinic.  Dermatology-trained fellows spend half of each day for an eight month period in surgical pathology, with emphasis in areas that overlap with dermatopathology.  All fellows interact closely with residents, fellows and staff of the Dermatology Department and University of Michigan Multidisciplinary Melanoma Program.  The dermatopathology service has approximately 27,000 accessions per year, including inhouse cases, outside consultative cases, and direct immunofluorescence specimens.  The fellow is encouraged to participate in ongoing investigative projects in the area of dermatopathology.

Applicants must be board-certified or eligible in anatomic pathology and/or dermatology.
