Surgical Pathology Fellowship


We offer a one-year accredited fellowship in surgical pathology that provides advanced, focused, and intensive training in diagnostic surgical pathology.

Specific rotations include: "hot seat", frozen section, sign out of consultation material by subspecialty (including immunohistochemistry and other special diagnostic techniques), junior attending and elective time.

Selective/elective time may be designed to pursue additional training in subspecialty areas of pathology (gynecologic, soft tissue, breast, gastrointestinal, renal, cardiopulmonary,genitourinary, pediatric, head & neck, transplantation), or other areas including molecular pathology, dermatopathology, cytopathology, hematopathology, and/or research.

Fellows participate in departmental and interdepartmental conferences, as well as medical student and resident teaching. Fellows share night/weekend call for surgical pathology.

Departmental resources and support are available for clinicopathologic and translational research projects.


Applications should be submitted by mid-August (approximately 22 months before anticipated start date).
