The Dermatopathology Division is housed in a world class, dedicated core pathology laboratory that is located on the beautiful Indianapolis central canal and cultural trail. Cutaneous specimens (more than 15,000 accessions annually) are received from the five hospitals on the academic health campus (Indiana University Hospital, Methodist Hospital, Eskenazi Hospital, Riley Children’s Hospital, and Roudebush Veterans Affairs Hospital), other hospitals in the state-wide IU Health network, and private dermatology practices. A robust volume of consultation cases are received from Indiana and surrounding states.
Training in histomorphology, immunohistochemistry, in situ hybridization, immunofluorescence, and molecular interpretation is provided by our four experienced faculty Dermatopathologists within the Pathology Department. Clinical dermatology training is provided by the Dermatology Department, which provides patient care at the five hospitals on the academic health campus and at numerous outreach clinics.
