The fellowship will provide advanced training in diagnostic Surgical Pathology. The goal of the fellowship is to improve diagnostic skills to ease the transition from residency to independent sign out. 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 graduated responsibility with independent sign out in the last three months, 3 months of elective time, no calls, no grossing and no autopsies. The 3 months of elective time can be tailored to suit the needs of the fellow. The approximately 25 pathologists on staff have a wide variety of subspecialty expertise to further enhance the fellow's training.
