Surgical Pathology Fellowship

Overview

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.

Stanford establishes PGY levels for new fellows based on the successful completion of all prerequisite training required for entry into your fellowship program. Stanford does not recognize additional training beyond the prerequisite training requirements when establishing the PGY level for entry into the program.
