Skin Pathology Education

Melbourne Pathology is at the forefront of education. Our team of Dermatopathologists hold weekly tutorials for Dermatology Registrars at our Collingwood laboratory, and contribute articles to the SkinDeep™ newsletter.

They are also active in GP education, hosting skin cancer conferences, multiheader microscope slide sessions and writing articles to assist in general practice.

Melbourne Pathology is pleased to offer their expertise in dermatopathology to clinicians through the Skin Health Institute Pathology Education section.

Here you will find interesting case studies and articles to further enhance your knowledge of pathology and skin diagnosis.
