The dermatopathology visiting observership program is designed so that pathologists and dermatologists from abroad may develop their skills in diagnostic dermatopathology. Positions are available for up to one year, depending on the goals of the candidate. The official UCSF credentialing for the visit will be as a Research Associate.

Teaching is mainly done at our daily sign out sessions, during which we see a wide variety of material. Our service reports on over 120,000 cases per year, including 20,000 consultations on referred slides. Sign out sessions are bolstered by didactic lectures (approximately 40/year).

There is opportunity to participate in clinicopathologic research studies, attend pathology and dermatology lectures and conferences, and also to work in affiliated research laboratories, such as molecular diagnostics, but participation is not required. There are no patient service responsibilities. Visiting observers must be self-supporting; those without institutional sponsorship are required to pay tuition of $10,000/annum.
