The CES University Dermatopathology program was created in 2009 and thanks to the quality of training available to its graduates, it is recognized nationally and internationally for its high quality and academic demand. The program is widely recognized in Latin America and for this reason it permanently receives international applicants and interns.

It has a select group of teachers and high-quality rotation fields that guarantee the adequate training of the specialist in Dermatopathology. Within its fields of practice, the Rodrigo Restrepo Pathology and Cytology Laboratory stands out, which is recognized locally, nationally and regionally for its specialization in the area of diagnostic support through a systematic study of biopsy and cytology material. In addition, the program has important international agreements that allow the academic mobility of its residents.
