Investing in the Future of Podiatry
A Two-Week Podiatric Dermatology Rotation Program
A unique learning experience encompassing dermatology, dermatopathology, and bone and soft tissue pathology, with focus on the lower extremity.
Bako Diagnostics is honored to provide a fully funded, two-week rotation in podiatric dermatology-dermatopathology at our laboratory facility in Alpharetta, Georgia. This program is designed to serve as the foundation for your practice of podiatric dermatology throughout your career.
“The Bako Fellowship has increased my ability to communicate with other professionals. It has provided valuable insight not only into dermatopathology, but also for podiatric practice in general.”
Matthew G. Martin, DPM, PGY-2, Heritage Valley Health System Podiatric Surgical Resident
“This mini-fellowship should be a requirement for all podiatric residents during their three-year curriculum.”
Michael Bowen, DPM, PGY-3, St. Vincent Charity Medical Center Podiatric Surgical Resident
