Elder microscopeProgram: This one-year ACGME dermatopathology fellowship is sponsored jointly by the Departments of Dermatology and Pathology of the University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Medicine. It is designed to provide intensive training in dermatopathology for board-certified/eligible graduates of Dermatology and Pathology programs.

The program is led by director Andrzej Slominski, MD, PhD, Professor of Dermatology and Pathology and Peter Pavlidakey, MD, PhD, Assistant Professor of Dermatology and Pathology.
