Dermatopathology is a subspecialty within the practice of dermatology. A board certified dermatopathologist has completed four years of medical school, followed by residency training of four to six years in either dermatology or general pathology. Subsequent to the residency, an additional one to two years of dermatopathology fellowship training is completed.
In the United States, the physician is first certified by the American Board of Dermatology or the American Board of Pathology and then obtains subspecialty certification in Dermatopathology accredited jointly by both organizations. Additional information is available through the American Society of Dermatopathology website
Our team includes two board certified dermatopathologists, Dr. Vilma Fabré and Dr. Andrea Burch. Together they provide expert microscopic examination and related analysis of skin tissues for a number of local and regional healthcare practices.
