The genitourinary (GU) pathology fellowship program is a one-year program designed to provide an intensive, comprehensive and diverse experience in diagnostic GU pathology. The GU service is the 2nd busiest pathology service offering a wide range of non-neoplastic and neoplastic cases from prostate, kidney, bladder, testis, adrenal and other GU organs. The fellow will be involved in every aspect of GU service with focus on clinical consults, teaching junior trainees, organizing and presenting at multiple weekly tumor boards and teaching sessions. GU pathology fellows are encouraged to engage in translational and/or basic research projects with the expectation to present their work at national meetings and to publish it. Our faculty has proven track records of both diagnostic and research excellence, running an active consultation service, biospecimen collection, rapid autopsy program, digital pathology facility and with extensive involvement in large institutional grants including the prostate SPORE program.
Applicants are expected to have completed the training required for certification in Anatomic Pathology by the American Board of Pathology.
