Barron Board Review


Hosted by David R. Barron, MD

The Barron Board Review is only open to third-year dermatology residents and attending dermatologists who plan to take the 2018 American Board of Dermatology or the American Osteopathic Board of Dermatology exam.

Dermpath Diagnostics is pleased to announce the 31st Annual Barron Board Review to be offered to all third year dermatology residents and attending dermatologists who have not yet taken the American Board of Dermatology exam.

Registration is now closed, see you in Chicago! 


Microscope Session

194 cases will be examined under the microscope. A multiple-choice exam will be supplied with similar time limitations given during the American Board of Dermatology exam. To meet the increasing demand of the Barron Board Review, two identical microscope sessions have been set up. Please note that you can only attend one of the microscope sessions.
