ICDP - UEMS International Board Certification in Dermatopathology


As all of you know, due to the current Covid-19 pandemia, in 2020 it was not possible to hold the examination in Dermatopathology organized by the ICDP. The Board of theb Examination will make all efforts to organize two examinations in 2021, but this will depend of course by the evolution of the global situation. As 2020's applicants could not give the exam, at present we are not accepting new applications until mid-June 2021, when it will be clear whether it will be possible to organize two examinations. We thus kindly ask all interested colleagues not to send new applications before mid-June 2021. We will update all relevant information about the 2021 examination(s) at the beginning of June.

Those who had applied for 2020 will be contacted by email with all relevant information.

We hope that you and your relatives are well and will continue to stay so, and strongly hope to be able to hold the exam in 2021!


The International Committee for Dermatopathology will organize the International Board Certifying Examination in Dermatopathology (Diploma in Dermatopathology) in Frankfurt/Main, Germany, on Saturday, December 5, 2020. The Examination is fully supported by European Union of Medical Specialists (Union Européenne Médecins Spécialistes = UEMS), Section of Dermato-Venereology. At present there are negotiations in order to organize a joint venture also with the  UEMS, Section of Pathology.
