The Gastrointestinal Fellowship Program at Emory University School of Medicine provides comprehensive training across the entire spectrum of gastrointestinal pathology from routine mucosal biopsies to complex resection specimens. Strengths of this program are twofold: a wide spectrum of case material goes hand-in-hand with dynamic and distinguished faculty, who are all enthusiastic about teaching, mentoring and transitional research. The fellow will be exposed to a high volume practice in both routine “every day” cases as well as specialized areas of gastrointestinal pathology such as pancreatic pathology, oncologic pathology, medical liver biopsies, and liver transplantation pathology. There is a busy review and consult service of cases referred from outside institutions which exposes the fellow to gastrointestinal pathology as practiced in the wider community. The fellow will develop the ability to handle a large and diverse case load in an efficient and accurate manner. Upon completing the program the fellow will be prepared to assume the role of a specialized gastrointestinal pathologist in either an academic or private practice setting. Attendance and presentation at GI consensus conferences, liver transplantation conference and multi-disciplinary tumor boards is required. Participation in one or more research projects and submission of at least one abstract/ completed manuscript for publication is required for successful completion of the fellowship.
