Established 35 years ago, this fellowship has a strong tradition of providing education in all aspects of surgical pathology beyond residency training. Under guidance of known experts, fellows are granted progressive autonomy. This program prepares trainees for independent sign-out in surgical pathology practice and focuses in important subspecialty areas. Gradual responsibility provides opportunity for appropriately seeking consultation. State of the art ancillary laboratories expose the fellows to new diagnostic and prognostic studies. Interpersonal and communication abilities, supervisory and management skills constitute essential components of this fellowship. Academic activities are fostered; ample material, resources, and expert guidance are available for participation in research projects.
With over 50 years' combined experience, the directors have contributed to advances in surgical pathology. Faculty members are general surgical pathologists with specific expertise in subspecialty areas. Collegiality and friendly environment foster professional and personal growth.
The purpose of this fellowship is to train well rounded surgical pathologists who will become the leaders in academia and community practice. The goal is to provide expertise in independent sign-out, diagnostic and prognostic advances, communication and management skills in surgical pathology to train future leaders in academia and community practice.
