Good luck to Maria I. Colome, MD in her new faculty position at UT-Houston

The DIG has learned that Friday was Dr. Colome's last day at UTMB. Dr. Colome first came to UTMB as a dermatopathology fellow, training under Dr. Ramon Sanchez. Following a dermatopathology position at MD Anderson, Dr. Colome returned to UTMB as the faculty dermatopathologist and concurrently completed an internship in family medicine that was followed by a residency in dermatology. Dr. Colome is highly regarded professionally as an internationally recognized dermatopathologist and dermatologist, and at UTMB she was always an excellent teacher for medical students and dermatology residents. She often served as an extremely valued ad hoc faculty committee member for multiple UTMB Dermatology Honors Research Program Projects by UTMB medical students. We will all miss interacting with her in the clinic and at the microscope in Galveston, and we wish her well at her new position in the Department of Dermatology at the UT-Houston with Dr. Ron Rapini.
Dr. Colome plans to continue the successful annual UTMB Dermatopathology review course at UTMB.
