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.


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.
