This is a one year fellowship program with 1-2 positions per year which provides the trainee with advanced training and experience in general surgical pathology at a busy academic medical center. The department sees approximately 23,000 surgical pathology specimens per year and an additional 4500 non-gynecologic cytology specimens, as well as 1500 fine needle aspirations. The fellowship consists of 10 months of structured training, progressing from a "hot-seat" role in which the fellow previews all surgical cases to spending time working up cases on each of the subspecialty services to assuming responsibility for teaching residents on service and signing out cases with attending co-signature. The fellow will also have graduated responsibility for covering the frozen section laboratory. Additional opportunities include teaching medical students in small group sessions, oversight of residents in the gross room and presentation at many interdisciplinary conferences. Elective time during the fellowship can be individually tailored to meet the needs of the fellow and spent in clinical or basic research or used for more rigorous training in various areas of surgical pathology.
Preference will be given to candidates who are Board certified or are eligible for certification by the American Board of Pathology in anatomic pathology or anatomic and clinical pathology.
Commensurate with the level of training.
