The intent of this two-year fellowship is to prepare individuals for a career in academic Dermatopathology. The first year of the fellowship will be devoted to translational research, with a focus on genetic sequencing of melanoma and atypical nevi. Additional projects will be more clinical and diagnostic so as to provide a mixed research experience. The second year of the fellowship will focus more on diagnostic Dermatopathology (and clinical dermatology for a pathology trained applicant). The fellowship is jointly sponsored by the Depts. of Pathology and Dermatology, at the Indiana Univ. Sch. of Medicine in Indianapolis. The Division of Dermatopathology is housed in a state of the art stand-alone pathology and lab medicine complex. Cutaneous biopsy material (over 15,000 accessions annually) is received from the five hospitals on campus (Indiana Univ Hosp, Methodist Hosp, Eskenazi Hosp, Riley Children's Hosp, and Roudebush Veterans Affairs Hosp), and private dermatology practices. Consultation cases are received from physicians in Indiana and surrounding states. Training in Dermatopathology, immunohistochemical techniques, in situ hybridization, immunofluorescence and molecular diagnosis is provided through the Pathology Dept. Abundant clinical material is available through the Dermatology Dept., which provides patient care at the five hospitals and at numerous outpatient clinics. Exposure to clinical and histopathologic material via daily sign-out, weekly teaching conferences, bi-monthly Dermatology Grand Rounds, weekly melanoma conference and attendance at national meetings will extend throughout the fellowship. Primary faculty includes three dermatopathologists. Additional interactions occur with numerous faculty members in dermatology and pathology.
