The Department of Pathology offers one ACGME accredited one-year fellowship position in gastrointestinal and liver pathology. The Department currently receives a mix of adult and pediatric biopsies and complex surgical specimens, including liver transplant. Each year we receive approximately 16,500 GI biopsies; 545 liver biopsies, 220 GI resections and 30 liver resections / explants. The program is enhanced by the strong clinical services in GI and liver and the well established interdisciplinary relationship with the gastroenterologists, surgeons, oncologists, radiologists and radiation oncologists.
The fellow’s responsibilities include slide review and preparation of reports of selected cases, presenting at interdepartmental conferences and tumor boards, and teaching and supervision of pathology residents. The fellow will also have the opportunity to participate in GI and Liver clinical rounds, including exposure to endoscopy. The fellow will be supervised and guided by subspecialty trained attendings. There are multiple research opportunities in both GI and liver, ranging from basic science to translational to clinical. The fellow is encouraged and expected to participate in a scholarly project during the year.
