Ackerman Academy of Dermatopathology

Passion for Patients

Excellence in Dermatopathology

The Ackerman Academy of Dermatopathology in New York City was founded by A. Bernard Ackerman, M.D. and AmeriPath, Inc. in 1999. Now under the direction of Drs. Geoffrey Gottlieb and Ying Guo, the Ackerman Academy of Dermatopathology continues to be a full-service diagnostic dermatopathology laboratory of the highest caliber as well as the largest and most widely known training facility for dermatopathology.


We are an “Academy” in the truest sense and relish the chance to help physicians with routine cases and those that are the most challenging. Each of our highly trained, board-certified dermatopathologists associates/faculty members provides highly accurate and clinically relevant diagnoses, often by employing clinicopathologic correlation and discussion with the referring physician. To arrive at the diagnoses with specificity in the most challenging cases, we welcome a visit to the Ackerman Academy by the patient for clinicopathologic correlation.


Each year receive thousands of consultations from around the world. We would be honored to extend that level of experience and expertise to you and your patients.
