Skin histology is an evolving science with new techniques being explored daily. Dermatopathology is currently experiencing unprecedented growth and billions of dollars are being poured into skin pathology research. Simply stated, because we all have skin, we all suffer from skin conditions.
This course only begins to reveal the depth and complexity of skin histology. The variety of techniques available to tackle these challenging specimens is as unique as each laboratory that handles skin. The Mohs technique and immunohistochemical (IHC) stains for skin are best saved for individual courses, as is the entire cellular and structural composition of different skin types found throughout the human body from head to toe.
Whether skins are considered a pleasant part of a work day or a pain to work with, this course addressed the most common concerns of working with derms and provides tips to create high quality slides for the dermatopathologist.
