Selective (Genitourinary) Pathology Fellowship

About the Program

The Department of Pathology offers a one-year program in genitourinary pathology starting July 1 each year. The fellowship is designed to provide comprehensive training in diagnostic genitourinary pathology with emphasis in the multidisciplinary team approach to the treatment of GU malignancies and opportunities in clinical, translational and basic research.

The fellow will participate in the diagnostic sign-out of biopsies, surgical specimens, referral and consultation cases with the faculty members of the Genitourinary Pathology Section. In addition, the fellow will have the opportunity to work with complex GU specimens, and participate in the evaluation of intraoperative frozen section consultations. Research opportunities in addition to clinical research include participation in all levels of translational research including ongoing clinical trials and basic research. The fellow is expected to complete one clinical/translational/basic research project during the fellowship.


Candidates must be board certified or board eligible for certification in anatomic or AP/CP pathology.
