Interdisciplinary Expertise

Complementary experience and training

One of the top reasons healthcare providers choose Washington University Dermatopathology Center is our team’s interdisciplinary expertise in dermatology, pathology and dermatopathology.

Director Dr. Ilana Rosman is trained in dermatology and dermatopathology, and Dr. Leigh Compton is trained in surgical pathology and dermatopathology. Together, their combined expertise produces diagnoses that you and your patients can trust.

Leveraging the Washington University network

Our physicians hold interdisciplinary clinicopathologic conferences several times a month to review challenging cases. A patient’s medical condition and history are reviewed by a team of experts at Washington University School of Medicine across multiple fields . Together they reach consensus for diagnosis and/or future treatment options.
