Residency & Fellowship Programs: Surgical Pathology Fellowship

Overview

Description: The Department of Pathology of Columbia University offers a one-year fellowship in general surgical pathology. This is an attending-level appointment as an Assistant Attending Pathologist at New York-Presbyterian Hospital, Columbia University Medical Center, and has full sign-out privileges and responsibilities. The fellowship is designed to bring the fellow from the level of senior resident to attending pathologist by giving the fellow graded clinical responsibility for gross room supervision, microscopic sign-out of cases grossed by junior level residents, fine needle aspiration biopsy, and frozen section interpretation. The fellow is supervised and guided by 20 senior level attending pathologists. The Division of Surgical Pathology receives more than 34, 000 adult and pediatric surgical specimens and 6,000 non-gynecologic cytology specimens per year. Excellent opportunities exist for clinical, translational, and basic science research within the Division and in the Department of Pathology

Requirements: The candidate must have completed an approved anatomic and clinical pathology training program. A New York State medical license is required for appointment as an Assistant Attending at New York-Presbyterian Hospital; this allows the fellow to independently sign-out cases.
