Gastrointestinal Pathology Fellowship

Next Opening: 2026-2027

The Department of Pathology offers a one-year fellowship in gastrointestinal-hepatobiliary pathology with an emphasis on diagnosis and clinicopathologic correlation. The fellowship begins on July 1st and ends on June 30th of the following year. The program includes training in the diagnosis and handling of resections and biopsies of the gastrointestinal tract, the liver, the pancreas, and the biliary tract, with supporting immunohistochemistry and molecular diagnostics. The fellow is the primary consultant for the daily diagnostic service for approximately 6 months, during which they interact closely with house officers, clinicians, clerical and technical staff, and the GI pathology faculty. The in-house diagnostic service handles approximately 100-160 biopsy slides per day. There is an active liver transplant program, so the fellow will gain extensive experience with liver resections and post-transplant biopsies. In addition, the fellow spends approximately 6 months on the consult service, which receives challenging cases from all over the country. During the consult service rotation, the fellow will gain experience in composing meaningful consultation reports. Elective rotations on the endoscopy service and elective research time may be included in the training. The fellow participates in regular gastrointestinal and liver pathology interdisciplinary and intradepartmental conferences and is encouraged to participate in clinically-oriented research projects with the aim of presenting these projects at national meetings and publishing them subsequently. This program is not ACGME accredited.

Applicants must be Board-certified or Board-eligible in anatomic pathology.  Applicants must be US citizens, permanent residents or pending permanent residents/EAD approved. J-1 visas are not eligible.

Support is commensurate with the candidate's level of training.
