Curriculum

Program overview
This one-year fellowship is ACGME-accredited and applicants must be board-eligible or board-certified in dermatology or pathology.

The primary goal of the fellowship is the provision of comprehensive training in dermatopathology as well as training in surgical pathology (for fellows with a dermatology background) or clinical dermatology (for fellows with a pathology background).

The fellow will participate in teaching residents in the Department of Dermatology, as well as in lectures and CME courses given in the Geisinger System. Under supervision of the director, the fellow is expected to initiate a research project leading to publication and/or presentation. A generous stipend is provided to attend national and regional conferences. Fellows receive a stipend and benefits commensurate with the appropriate PGY training level.
