Barron Core Exam

Dermpath Diagnostics is excited to announce the return of the 33rd annual Barron Core Exam, previously known as the Barron Board Review.

Dr Dave Barron, a dermatopathologist for more than 4 decades, brings his extensive knowledge and experience to help derm residents pass their board exams.

He has hosted 32 board reviews to date, for more than 6,000 residents. To the best of our knowledge, every attendee of the Barron Board Review has passed their board exam.

Due to the recent changes made to the certification process the course has been expanded to include all dermatology residents and is no longer restricted to 3rd year dermatology residents.

Barron Core Exam

The new digital format consists of 194 comprehensive cases, including most of the diagnoses you might see on the exam. The timed self-review is available digitally through PathPresenter the week of the course to accommodate your daily residency schedule and allow for more flexibility.

Case Review

Dr Barron will then virtually review and discuss each of the 194 cases in full detail through a digital slide show. Dave will provide helpful tips that he finds useful when diagnosing skin disorders.
