Next Opening: 2022-2023
The Department of Pathology offers a one-year fellowship in gastrointestinal-hepatobiliary pathology with 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 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 about 6 months and interacts closely with house officers, clinicians, clerical and technical staff and the GI pathology faculty. The in-house diagnostic service handles approximately 65 cases 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 about 6 months on the consult service, covering the 8-12 problem cases daily which are submitted by pathologists from other institutions. During the consult service rotation, the fellow is instructed in composing meaningful consultation reports. An elective rotation on the endoscopy service is included in the training. The fellow will participate in regular gastrointestinal and liver pathology interdisciplinary and intradepartmental conferences including the weekly Gastrointestinal Tumor Board. The fellow is encouraged to participate in clinically-oriented research projects with the aim of presenting these projects at national meetings and publishing them subsequently.
Applicants must be Board-certified or Board-eligible in anatomic pathology.
Support is commensurate with the candidate's level of training.
