  • The first track is designed for clinically-based, board-eligible dermatologists. It consists of six months in Mayo Clinic's dermatopathology laboratories and six months divided between anatomical and surgical pathology, and dermatopathology.
  • The second track is for laboratory-based, board-eligible pathologists. The entire year is devoted to extensive clinical experience in dermatology and dermatopathology. Training includes daily patient conferences, hospital rounds, and floor and clinicopathological conferences.


The training program fulfills the requirements for subspecialty training in dermatopathology set by the American Boards of Dermatology and Pathology.
