University of Nebraska Medical Center; Gastrointestinal /Liver / Transplant


Duration: 1 Year
The Department of Pathology, Microbiology, and Immunology at the University of Nebraska Medical Center has an unaccredited one-year Gastrointestinal/Liver & Transplant Pathology Fellowship. The curriculum consists of advanced rotations in adult and pediatric GI pathology (both biopsies and resections) and liver and pancreatic pathology (including transplant). One or two months of dedicated time for elective or research are provided, including a rotation in state-of-the-art molecular diagnostics in GI pathology if desired. One of the goals of the program is to ease the transition from residency to independent sign-out with Fellows expected to sign-out independently the last three months of the fellowship. Attention will be given to fulfill the needs of the individual in terms of gaining skills towards pursuing a career in either private practice or academics. Ample opportunity is also available for the teaching of residents and participation in Tumor Boards. Pathology sign-out is subspecialized at UNMC and fellowship instruction will come from our team of subspecialist GI and Liver Pathologists.

Applicants for the gastroenterology/liver fellowship program can either be M.D or D.O and must be board eligible or certified in anatomic pathology (AP) or combined anatomic and clinical pathology (AP/CP). The position is for one year July 1 – June 30.

Applicants should submit a complete application package. The application package includes the CAP standardized fellowship application form, a curriculum vitae, personal statement, United States Medical Licensing Examination summary sheet showing parts 1, 2, & 3, AP/CP board certification (if applicable), Medical School Diploma, Dean’s letter, Medical School Transcripts, and three letters of recommendation. The personal statement should include a brief overview of the applicant’s interest, related experiences, and long-term career goals. The three letters of recommendation should include one letter from the applicant’s current program director.
