dermatology for a career in dermatopathology. It is ideally suited to train
academic dermatopathologists. Training covers a broad range of subjects
including immunopathology and laboratory management; emphasis is placed on
clinico-pathologic correlation. Formal teaching conferences and daily sign out

publication in a medical journal. Support is offered in identifying employment
