General Surgical Pathology Fellowship

This non-ACGME accredited fellowship is designed to develop outstanding diagnostic skills in surgical pathology. The fellow will rotate in the fully subspecialized academic SP division that accessions approximately 60,000 in-house cases and over 2,000 extramural consultations annually and is staffed by 30 surgical pathologists representing all subspecialties including renal, pediatric, and transplant pathology. The program is designed to prepare the fellow for a successful career in academic medicine as a bridge year to a subspecialty fellowship, or in general private practice. The fellow will participate in core subspecialty rotations including GI/Hepatobiliary, Breast/Gynecologic, GU, ENT, Thoracic/Bone and Soft Tissue pathology, Frozen Section “hot seat”, and Outreach Pathology at Meriter Hospital, which includes a combination of general surgical pathology sign out and select lab administration duties. Electives are possible in the following subspecialties: perinatal and placental pathology, renal and renal transplant pathology, medical lung and heart and heart/lung transplant pathology, neuropathology, and molecular and infectious disease pathology as applicable to the anatomic pathologist. The fellow will participate in lab leadership and administration training with SP Director and will be required to complete at least one quality improvement, education, or research project with the expectation that this project will lead to conference presentation and publication. Independent sign out of 1-2 weeks on each of the core services with faculty back up will be expected.
