Molecular Genetic Pathology Fellowship
The Molecular Genetic Fellowship in the Department of Pathology currently has three funded fellowship positions per year.
This is an ACGME-accredited fellowship.
The Stanford Molecular Genetic Pathology program serves the adult and pediatric populations at Stanford and also sees referrals from Northern California and the rest of the nation.
The program is interdisciplinary and includes participation of faculty in the Departments of Pathology, Medicine, Pediatrics (Division of Medical Genetics) and Genetics. Laboratory rotations include formal training in Molecular Genetic Pathology, Biochemical Genetics, Cytogenetics, and Molecular Microbiology/Virology.
Fellows will be trained in assay development, quality assurance, and results interpretation in the Molecular Pathology Laboratory at Stanford and the Kaiser-Permanente Regional Molecular Diagnosis Laboratory, a large reference laboratory for the Kaiser system which offers a testing menu that is complimentary to that of Stanford.
Fellows are expected to complete a translational research project resulting in a clinical test for patient care during the fellowship.
Stanford University offers an outstanding environment for research opportunities in medicine, technology, and computational data sciences relevant to molecular pathology.
Eligible candidates for the Molecular Genetic Pathology fellowship must be board certified or board-eligible by the American Board of Pathology or the American Board of Medical Genetics.
Fellowship positions for 2021-2022 and 2022-2023 have been filled.
Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis.
