Program overview

Geisinger’s one-year Dermatopathology Fellowship is ACGME-accredited and open to applicants who are board-eligible or board-certified in dermatology or pathology.

You’ll receive comprehensive training in dermatopathology. Fellows with a dermatology background will also be trained in surgical pathology. Fellows with a pathology background will be trained in clinical dermatology.

Along with being a learner, you’ll be an educator. Our fellows teach residents in the departments of dermatology and laboratory medicine and participate in lectures and CME courses offered in and outside of Geisinger. 

Teaching is a popular aspect of our Dermatopathology Fellowship. Our fellows often tell us they enjoy the opportunity to share their growing knowledge and expertise with others. 

Learning extends beyond the classroom and lab. Geisinger has a long tradition of research and innovation, and we expect those who join our program to be curious and dedicated to pushing the boundaries of our field. Under the director’s supervision, you’ll undertake a research project, with the goal of publication and/or presentation. A generous stipend allows you to attend national and regional conferences. You’ll also receive a stipend and benefits commensurate with the appropriate PGY training level.

At the end of your training, you’ll be a skilled, knowledgeable dermatopathologist who would be an asset to any health system.
