Florida Dermatology and Dermatopathology Board Review Course

University of FloridaThe University of Florida Department of Dermatology sponsors the annual Florida Dermatology & Dermatopathology Board Review Course. The purpose of this course is to provide senior dermatology residents with a “board-focused” review of dermatology and dermatopathology to aid participants in preparation for the American Board of Dermatology’s Certification Exam.

The Florida Dermatology & Dermatopathology Board Review Course is a comprehensive regimen that is similar to the Dermatology Board Exam. It is meant to be a comprehensive review of possible topics that could appear on the exam. The dermatology portion of the course focuses on general dermatology topics, such as basic science, basement membrane biology, dermatological manifestation of internal disease, hair and nail biology/disorders, pediatric dermatology, drug metabolism, and more.

In the dermatopathology portion of the course, participants examine 200 glass microscopic slides in a self-test format and engage in a review of all the slides examined. Class sizes are limited to allow for one-on-one question and answer sessions, as well as in-depth discussions, with instructors.

Note to all participants: In order to keep lodging prices low to our attendees, UF Department of Dermatology has negotiated certain amount of room blocks at the The Westshore Grand Hotel in Tampa.

This year we will be offering a portion of the dermatopathology slide review in a digital format to prepare residents in anticipation for upcoming changes in the certifying examination.
