Dermatopathology Fellowship Application Cycle
for fellowships beginning July 2025
Dermatopathology fellowship training directors from across the nation have proposed using an internally devised timeline for applications to dermatopathology fellowship training programs that will begin in July 2025 in an effort to establish more uniformity and fairness for both fellowship applicants and fellowship programs. The programs listed below have agreed to the timeline for external applicants applying to their programs. Inclusion in this list does not guarantee a vacant fellowship position.*
This list is not an exhaustive list of available dermatopathology fellowship programs. All programs (regardless of participation in this timeline) are accessible to applicants by searching the ACGME website. It is the responsibility of applicants to confirm the timeline of application submission with the individual programs to which they are applying.
This downloadable fellowship application was approved by a majority of Dermatopathology fellowship program directors and may be an acceptable application form for many of the programs in which you are interested in applying. Please contact individual programs to confirm that this application can be submitted. Each program may have institution-specific forms to submit as well during the application process. It is up to the applicant to ensure that the correct forms are submitted.
*Programs planning to offer a fellowship position to an internal candidate or other valid agreed upon reason for “opting out” may extend fellowship offers prior to the October 2, 2023 date mentioned below.
• July 1 2023: programs start accepting applications.
Programs may also accept applications after these dates.
• August 14 2023: programs start interviews.
Programs may also interview applicants after these dates.
• October 2, 2023 at 11AM EST/8 AM PST: programs first offer position for the 2025-2026 fellowship year
(with 24 hours for applicants to accept/decline first offer). Offers may also be extended at any time AFTER this date, with
applicants having at least 24 hours to accept/decline.
***Please note: It is the recommended guideline/practice that applicants only hold/consider one fellowship offer at a time. Should an applicant receive >1 offer, the recommended practice would be that the applicant should turn down the one they want the least while deciding to accept/decline the other.
