Dermatopathology Fellowship


This one year ACGME-accredited fellowship program in Dermatopathology is designed to for fellows who are board eligible or board certified in Pathology or Dermatology. Two ACGME accredited fellowship appointments are available with one fully- funded position available per year. The caseload is comprised of routine cases generated from Johns Hopkins Dermatology and other Hopkins clinics and consults from outside practices, both nationally and internationally. There are three full time faculty and three part time faculty with additional expertise in immunofluorescence and oral pathology. The location of the Dermatopathology Division in the Department of Dermatology affords routine clinical/patient interaction.

Pathology-trained fellows will spend time in the Johns Hopkins dermatology clinics, including pediatric, surgical, and medical subspecialty clinics. Dermatology-trained fellows will rotate through different pathology subspecialties, including surgical pathology, hematopathology, cytopathology and molecular pathology. The fellowship is designed to provide graded clinical responsibilities. Research and teaching are integral part of the fellowship. The fellow will have responsibilities to teach dermatology and pathology residents on regular basis, and to present at multidisciplinary tumor boards and Department of Dermatology clinical conferences. The fellow will also participate in clinical and experimental research with potential for interdepartmental collaboration and presentation at national meetings.
