This one-year accredited program is designed to train up to two well-rounded, academically oriented surgical pathologists and to provide advanced training in diagnostic surgical pathology. The fellowship provides extensive training in all aspects of surgical pathology including:
Approximately 37,500 surgical specimens are evaluated each year in our hospital-based laboratory.
Particularly strong interdepartmental programs exist in cancer prevention and control and epidemiology and biostatistics. Fellows have the opportunity to participate in clinical and basic research in addition to diagnostic cases.
Fellows have first-hand experience in signing out cases, intra-operative consultations including frozen sections and review of outside consultations. After a training period, fellows are expected to assume graded, sign-out responsibilities under supervision.
Candidates must be Board eligible or certified in anatomic pathology or anatomic and clinical pathology and must have, or be eligible for, an unrestricted license to practice medicine in Kansas.
