Resident Dermatopathology Training


Since its inception, Aurora Diagnostics South Texas Dermatopathology Lab has been an integral component of the dermatology and pathology residency training programs in San Antonio. We host military and civilian dermatology and pathology residents on a continuous schedule throughout the year, and they receive an in depth exposure to dermatopathology through daily sign-out of skin biopsies. Our teaching slide collection, which contains over 5000 cases, serves as an additional resource for these residents as well as those preparing for board exams. We provide review sessions at local institutions, present at regional and national meetings and take pride in knowing that many of our former students have chosen dermatopathology as a career goal.

We at ARDX STDL are committed to teaching and are often rewarded with comments such as this:

Dr. Libow,
I have been meaning to write for a few months now to thank you, Dr. Stevens and Dr. Davis for providing me such a top notch dermatopathology rotation in January. It was hands-down the best teaching I’ve had during my nearly four years as a resident here. I thoroughly enjoyed my month with you guys and feel like my dermpath abilities improved drastically in a very short time, thanks to your teaching and great study sets.

Residents, staff and referring physicians in private practice are all welcome to join us for a great dermatopathology experience.
