Program Detail
The Department of Pathology and Microbiology at the University of Nebraska Medical Center has a one-year Gastrointestinal/Liver Pathology Fellowship. The curriculum consists of advanced rotations in adult and pediatric GI pathology (both biopsies and resections) and liver and pancreatic pathology (including transplant). One or two months of dedicated time for elective or research are provided, including a rotation in state-of-the-art molecular diagnostics in GI pathology if desired. One of the goals of the program is to ease the transition from residency to independent sign-out with Fellows expected to sign-out independently the last three months of the fellowship. Attention will be given to fulfill the needs of the individual in terms of gaining skills towards pursuing a career in either private practice or academics. Ample opportunity is also available for the teaching of residents and participation in Tumor Boards. Pathology sign out is subspecialized at UNMC and will come from our team of subspecialist GI and Liver Pathologists.
