Surgical Pathology Fellowship

Program Description
This fellowship will provide advanced training in diagnostic Surgical Pathology. The goal of the fellowship would be to improve and learn diagnostic skills so as to ease the transition from residency to independent sign out. Dr. Subodh Lele is the program director for the surgical pathology fellowship. Attention will be given to fulfill the needs of the individual fellow in terms of gaining skills towards pursuing a career in either private practice or academics. Highlights of the surgical pathology fellowship include independent sign out in the last three months of the fellowship. Approximately 25 pathologists on staff have a wide variety of subspecialty expertise to further enhance the fellow’s training. There will be several months of elective time which could be tailored to suit the needs of the fellow.

The University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC) and its affiliated hospital, The Nebraska Medical Center (TNMC), comprise the Medical Center campus which is located in central Omaha, Nebraska. The Surgical Pathology division at TNMC accessions more than 27,000 specimens with a wide range of neoplastic and non-neoplastic pathology. TNMC is a world-renowned transplant center that will offer the candidate the opportunity to learn transplant pathology. There is also full access to state-of-the-art facilities in molecular and ultrastructural techniques.

During the first three months of training, the Fellow will be paired with a first year resident to supervise gross, frozen sections, and sign out on a three day or four day cycle. For the next six months, the Fellow will choose the sequence of their rotation through four major areas: frozen section and consults (one month); liver, heart and transplant biopsies (one month); cervical biopsies and consults (one month), and elective time (three month). Elective time is rotations based on Fellow’s choice. The final three months will be the opportunity in which the Fellow completes independent sign out.
