Dr. Joel Crockett, MD

Dermatologist

Professional statement

Joel Crockett, MD is a board-certified dermatologist and technology entrepreneur specializing in medical, procedural and cosmetic dermatology. Dr. Crockett is a Bay Area native with a rich family tradition of medical service in the East Bay, beginning with his grandfather, Cless Crockett, who established his medical practice in Hayward in 1930. Cless had 3 sons, including Dr. Crockett’s father, all of whom pursued careers in medicine and settled in the East Bay. Dr. Crockett completed his undergraduate training at Brigham Young University, majoring in neuroscience, after which he attended St. Louis University School of Medicine. Following medical school, Dr. Crockett completed a dermatology residency at Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio. As a first year dermatology resident, Dr. Crockett conceptualized and led the development of Clearpath, an iPad application allowing residents to access pathology images via a touch enabled digital microscope. The application has been used by thousands of trainees worldwide and has been adopted by several dermatology programs as a core part of their curriculum. Shortly after completing his residency, Dr. Crockett organized a team of physicians and engineers to extend Clearpath to the clinical environment. This led to the creation of a digital pathology platform enabling dermatologists and dermatopathologists to diagnose skin biopsy specimens from a tablet device. The technology increased laboratory efficiency, facilitated greater collaboration among pathologists and led to the creation of a vast medical repository of digital images. Dr. Crockett is currently part of an effort to use those images in the development of machine learning algorithms to allow assisted and automated diagnosis in clinical pathology.
