Gynecology Pathology Fellowship


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

  • Specific rotations include: "hot seat", frozen section, sign out of consultation material (including immunohistochemistry and other special diagnostic techniques), “junior” attending sign-out, placental pathology, research, 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, cytogenetics, hematopathology, and/or research or other areas depending on fellow interest and/or career goals.
  • 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.


The program is no longer accepting applications for the 2022-2023 fellowship.
