The Division of Surgical Pathology at the University of Rochester Medical Center / Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester, New York invites applicants for its Gastrointestinal / Hepatobiliary Fellowship.
The GI subspecialty service at URMC is a busy one and encompasses the breadth of GI and liver pathology. The University of Rochester is home to active groups of foregut surgeons, surgical oncologists and colorectal surgeons who care for patients with both neoplastic and medical diseases. In addition, we perform almost 28,000 GI biopsy examinations a year that also include both neoplastic and medical pathology. The liver transplant/hepatobiliary surgery program here is well established, having been in place for almost 20 years; we have an excellent relationship with their team of four surgeons. There are multiple interdisciplinary GI conferences at URMC (including GI oncology, hepatobiliary oncology, transplant and pediatric among others) in which fellows may actively participate.
If desired, fellows will have the opportunity to rotate through other subspecialty services or affiliated community hospitals. Sign out privileges are also anticipated for fellows with appropriate qualifications. Opportunities for collaborative translational research abound and departmental funds are available for projects as well as travel for presentation of results at a national meeting.
The University of Rochester is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer.
