H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center
Gastrointestinal and Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary Pathology Fellowship
The Gastrointestinal and Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary pathology fellowship at the Moffitt Cancer Center and Research Institute is a one-year program with focus on providing key diagnostic training in a variety of neoplastic and non-neoplastic disorders of the gastrointestinal and hepato-pancreato-biliary tracts.
The H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center is a Comprehensive Cancer Center designated by the National Cancer Institute and resides on the campus of the University of South Florida, Tampa, Florida. The Cancer Center annually has ~4,500 GI biopsies, ~1,800 GI resections, and ~5,000 GI consultations from outside institutions. The existence of a busy hepato-pancreato-biliary surgical oncology program provides a large number of pancreatic and hepatobiliary specimens, in addition to esophageal, gastric, intestinal and colorectal resections. The advanced endoscopy service performs endoscopic mucosal and submucosal resections. The Cancer Center also has a busy bone marrow transplantation service, and the GI pathology group reviews many biopsies for diagnosing graft-vs-host disease or related diseases.
The fellowship program is designed to provide comprehensive and advanced training in all aspects of Gastrointestinal and Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary pathology including both neoplastic and non-neoplastic entities and cytopathology utilizing immunohistochemistry, fluorescent in situ hybridization and molecular pathology (pyrosequencing, sequenom, next generation sequencing, etc.).
The GI fellow’s responsibilities include inspection of specimen grossing, frozen section interpretation, complete evaluation and preparation of GI cases including review/consultation cases, and presentation for the tumor boards and intradepartmental conferences. The fellow is expected to be closely involved in the Anatomic Pathology departmental research activities. The fellow is expected to present the research activities at national and international meetings (USCAP, ASCP, CAP etc.), and to submit at least one manuscript for publication during the training period. The fellow is also expected to actively participate in the teaching of medical students, residents and visiting physicians. The fellow will be supervised and guided by the GI Pathology faculties. The Fellowship will consider optional elective time for the fellow to gain or strengthen experience in other specialties prior to the graduation based on the fellow’s performance and career development.
