Nicole Rachel Dominiak



  • My name is Nicole Dominiak and I have been an Assistant Professor in the Department of Pathology since 2017.  After graduating from the University of Toledo College of Medicine, I pursued my residency in Anatomic and Clinical Pathology at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston.  I also completed a Dermatopathology Fellowship there as well.  I am board certified in Anatomic, Clinical, and Dermatopathology.  I hold current medical licenses in both Ohio and Michigan.

    Since returning to UT, I have immersed myself in the academic environment of the college and the university taking on many varied responsibilities.  One of my largest responsibilities is being the Program Director for the Assistant in Pathology Master’s Program.  I also participate heavily in teaching and mentoring which I find most rewarding.  I teach both didactically and clinically for medical students, pathology assistant students, as well as residents and pre-clinical fellows.  Mentoring and advising students and residents is the most rewarding portion of my roles here at UT.

    My clinical responsibilities include surgical pathology and dermatopathology coverage, as well as procedural coverage for frozen section analyses and immediate adequacy assessment for fine needle aspirations.

    My specialty interests include melanoma, non-melanoma skin cancers and inflammatory dermatoses.  My research interest are in melanoma as well as resident and medical student education.
