Message from the Directors

On behalf of the webinar directors, welcome to the first annual Dermatopathology Fellowship Forum Webinar. We are excited to present this novel forum that will present nearly all details of dermatopathology fellowships. The application process, what to expect while completing a dermatopathology fellowship and so much more will be covered!

We hope that the virtual format of this session will allow you the flexibility to engage with our expert group of panelists in a relaxed atmosphere. The group is looking forward to discussing their unique perspectives and answering questions you may have about the process.
We want to thank our panelists, the planning committee and ASDP staff for their assistance in creating this experience. We hope that this will be a high yield and enjoyable program for you all and look forward to your participation.‎ 

Once again, welcome and enjoy the session!
