Dermatopathology Fellowship

Dermatopathology Fellowship

The Harvard-Mass General Brigham (MGB) Dermatopathology Fellowship is an ACGME-accredited training program that draws on the facilities of the Brigham and Women's Hospital (BWH) and Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH), with didactic input from faculty at Boston Children's Hospital and the Dana Farber Cancer Institute. The Harvard Dermatopathology Fellowship is overseen at BWH by Dr. George Murphy, Program Director and Dr. Alvaro Laga, Co-Director, and at MGH by Dr. Mai Hoang, Institutional Director.

The normal period of training is one year, but two-year training is considered in some circumstances. Research and/or clinical fellowships are also available. Residents enter the program eligible for board certification in dermatology or pathology and receive six months of complementary training in pathology or clinical dermatology, respectively.

Additionally, fellows take required training in:

  • Basic dermatopathology
  • Dermatoimmunopathology
  • Immunofluorescence
  • Microbiology/mycology
  • Tissue processing for both routine and specialized microscopy
  • Diagnostic electron microscopy
  • Immunocytochemistry
  • Laboratory management

Clinical and basic research are conducted throughout the program. Residents and fellows have the opportunity to attend varied clinical and pathological diagnostic conferences, and teach in the training programs offered to students, residents, and postgraduates
