Gastrointestinal Pathology Fellowship

A position will be opening for 2016-2017

The Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine of Weill Cornell Medical College (WCMC) offers a 1-year fellowship position in gastrointestinal pathology. Fellows must complete residency training in anatomic pathology and be certified (or eligible for certification) by the American Board of Pathology. The fellowship focuses on characterization of neoplastic and non-neoplastic diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, pancreas and liver. It emphasizes a multidisciplinary team approach to patient management as well as clinicopathologic and translational research. A wealth of interesting and challenging in-house and consultation case material is available for study, as are comprehensive slide study sets. The gastrointestinal pathology team is fully subspecialized and includes four full-time faculty members devoted exclusively to gastrointestinal, pancreatic, and hepatic pathology as well as additional faculty who participate on the service. Case material covers the full range of gastrointestinal diseases, including a substantial amount of non-neoplastic and transplant hepatic pathology. Fellows are encouraged to participate in a 2-month rotation at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center during the fellowship, as well as rotations through the endoscopy suite. Research opportunities are available through the Translational Research Core Facility under the supervision of attending faculty.
