You will be presented with information on each case including clinical history, specimen source information, diagnostic findings and other ancillary testing data, and a corresponding whole slide image.

After completing this SAM eligible activity and post-test, you should be able to:
- Examine dermatology biopsy slides and establish the diagnosis by integration of clinical information and morphologic findings.
