What Is Dermatopathology ?

Dermatopathology is a joint subspecialty of dermatology and pathology or surgical pathology that focuses on the study of cutaneous diseases at a microscopic and molecular level. It also encompasses analyses of the potential causes of skin diseases at a basic level.
One of the greatest challenges of dermatopathology is an enormous variety of skin disorders. There are an estimated 1500 different rashes and skin tumors, including variants. Therefore, an accurate microscopic interpretation of skin biopsy is important for optimal management.
All cases processed in Cosmetique laboratory are examined by a board-certified Dermatopathologist. Hence, Dermatology and Dermatopathology are amongst the most complex specialties in medicine, and we are proud to offer you both under one roof!

Dermatopathology

Experienced candidates may occasionally be permitted to sit the examination without completing the training programme at a training centre. This variance will be at the discretion of the Chair of Examiners in Dermatopathology and Clinical Director of Training and Assessment at The Royal College of Pathologists.
Candidates must hold a minimum of either the FRCPath in histopathology, or hold the Certificate of Competence of Training (CCT) in dermatology, or be within a year of being eligible for the CCT in dermatology. Candidates from countries other than the UK must have an equivalent qualification or similar accreditation status.
The standard required to pass the Diploma in Dermatopathology is that of a medical expert specialist offering a diagnostic opinion in dermatopathology to local and often more distant colleagues. Candidates for the examination will be expected to demonstrate considerable knowledge in all aspects of dermatopathology, at a standard beyond that required to pass the FRCPath examination in histopathology.
Newly qualified candidates (with FRCPath and CCT in dermatology) to the examination will normally be expected to have undertaken a minimum of one year’s training at a centre with a specialised dermatopathology service and a consultant dermatopathologist who holds the Diploma in Dermatopathology. The candidate should spend the year in a specialised service with rotations through dermatology/pathology depending on background.
