Surgical Pathology Fellowship
This one-year accredited program is designed to train up to two well-rounded, academically oriented surgical pathologists. The fellowship provides advanced training in all aspects of diagnostic surgical pathology including:
Breast | Head and Neck | Endocrine | Gynecologic | Gastrointestinal/Pancreatic | Liver | Thoracic | Genitourinary | Bone and Soft Tissue | Heart | Transplant
Elective training may be available in Dermatopathology | Hematopathology | Neuropathology | Cytopathology
Approximately 38,000 surgical specimens are evaluated each year. The University of Kansas Health System has a National Cancer Institute-designated cancer center serving a complex patient population.
Fellows have an in-depth experience with comprehensive case sign-outs, intra-operative/frozen section consultations and review of outside consultations. After a training period, fellows are expected to assume graded, sign-out responsibilities under supervision.
Fellows are also required to participate in interdepartmental multidisciplinary tumor conferences and teach pathology residents and medical students. Fellows have the opportunity to participate in clinical and basic research and are encouraged to design and complete a research project.
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.
