The International Board Certification in Dermatopathology (Diploma in Dermatopathology) will be organized on August 9, 2017, in cartagena de indias, Colombia.
The first part of the examination (morning) is a written examination that consists of approximately 50 multiple choice questions. These questions are taken from the relatively recent literature (Journal of Cutaneous Pathology, American Journal of Dermatopathology) and primarily from the major Dermatopathology textbooks. Controversial issues and very recent developments are avoided.
The second portion of the examination (morning – again multiple choice) is a series of projected slides from topics that include immunofluorescence (bullous diseases), immunohistology, and clinical/histological pictures (clinicopathological correlation).
The final section of the examination (afternoon) consists of glass slides (70-100). The examinees are asked to provide the best diagnosis from multiple choice or short-answer questions. The slides are straight forward; however, a few rare, non-controversial entities will be included.
The deadline for receipt of applications is May 30, 2017 – “first come, first serve”. 30 candidates can be accepted.
