Gastrointestinal (GI) Pathology Fellowship


The ACGME-accredited fellowship in gastrointestinal pathology is designed to offer advanced, focused and intensive diagnostic training in gastrointestinal, hepatobiliary, and pancreas pathology, including medical liver and transplant.

  • Specific rotations include: "hot seat", frozen section, sign out of consultation material (including immunohistochemistry and other special diagnostic techniques) and elective time.
  • Elective time may be designed to pursue additional subspecialty training in other areas of surgical pathology, including dermatopathology, or in molecular pathology, hematopathology, and/or research.
  • Fellows participate in departmental and interdepartmental conferences, as well as medical student and resident teaching.
  • Departmental resources and support are available for clinicopathologic and translational research projects.
