About the Program

A one-year fellowship in surgical pathology (five positions) is offered by the Division of Surgical Pathology. Based in a 734-bed tertiary care university hospital, the program provides advanced training and responsibility in diagnostic surgical pathology through rotations which include preliminary diagnosis of all cases, frozen section interpretation, gross room supervision, consult service, tumor boards, and elective time for sub-specialty and/or research experience.

Special laboratory expertise may be gained in Molecular Pathology/Diagnostics and Immunopathology. The laboratory examines more than 50,000 surgical specimens and 4,050 frozen sections per year.
