Dermatopathology Fellowship

Dermatopathology Fellowship

The Moffitt/USF Dermatopathology fellowship is a one-year, ACGME-accredited fellowship, funded by the Moffitt Cancer Center (MCC) and administered by University of South Florida (USF) Department of Dermatology and Cutaneous Surgery, with close collaborations with the Cutaneous Oncology Program at Moffitt Cancer Center and the USF Department of Pathology and Cell Biology.

Established in 2004, the fellowship draws from the complementary strengths of the Dermatopathology services at its three participating institutions and comprises of a one year of clinical Dermatopathology with the option of an additional one year of research. At MCC, the fellow is exposed to a highly specialized practice with experts in diagnosis and treatment of melanoma (approximately 1,500 patients/year), Merkel cell carcinoma, cutaneous sarcoma, and cutaneous lymphoma. At USF, the high volume Dermatopathology service is responsible for interpreting biopsies from approximately 15,000 patients/year, comprising a well-rounded patient mix of inflammatory disease and neoplasms. At the James A. Haley Veterans Hospital, Dermatopathology comprises a large portion of the anatomic pathology volume (approximately 8,000 cases/year). The fellow acquires skills by a combination of active participation in sign-out with pre-reading of cases, teaching of pathology and dermatology residents as well as surgical oncology fellows, coverage of MCC Cutaneous Oncology Multidisciplinary Conference and didactic teaching by faculty. The optional research year is intercalated with the clinical experience.
