Training Centres

Applications are accepted to become an accredited Training Centre for the ICDP International Board Certifying Examination – Diploma in Dermatopathology.

Accreditation of a “Training Centre in Dermatopathology” requires filling out the application form. Visits from representatives (on-site inspection) may be necessary and will include evaluation of the facility, interview with the lead of dermatopathology, teaching staff, and trainees. The program will have ongoing mechanisms of re-accreditation (re-evaluation after 5 years for continuing professional development). Re-accreditation will be also required if there is a change of the program director.

A Training Centre can be a single institution or an interdisciplinary group (University, Hospitals, Practitioners) fulfilling all criteria mentioned in the guidelines.

US centres that are accredited by the American Board of Dermatopathology will be accepted as accredited training centres only if the nominated Program Director has passed the European Board.

Applications sent before August 1, 2024 will be processed at the Board Meeting of the ICDP-UEMS International Board Certification in Dermatopathology in Frankfurt/M., October 2024.
