Dermatopathology Elective 180.14



Elective Director:  Dr. Lynne Goldberg

Instructors:  Dermpath faculty

Description of Elective

This elective is designed to give the highly motivated student exposure to the practice of dermatopathology. Much time will be spent in periodically supervised independent study of dermatopathology teaching sets. The student will attend several weekly dermatopathology conferences given by the dermatopathology faculty and fellows, as well as related conferences in the dermatology department including Grand Rounds, clinical-pathologic correlation sessions and clinical dermatology lectures. At the end of the elective, the student will informally present an interesting biopsy specimen chosen by the faculty, with the option of preparing a brief report suitable for publication.
