The Department of Pathology at the University of Utah School of Medicine offers a one-year fellowship program in GI, hepatic, and pancreaticobiliary pathology. This fellowship is designed to give the fellow experience at the junior faculty level, including progressive sign-out privileges for qualified fellows. Fellows have the opportunity to learn about the range of diseases within this subspecialty, including Barrett's esophagus, inflammatory bowel disease, cancer and precancerous conditions, mesenchymal and hematolymphoid lesions, motility disorders, pancreatobiliary tumors, as well as medical, neoplastic, and transplant hepatic pathology. Our program offers in-depth training in molecular diagnosis, an ever expanding and critical component of GI and all pathology.
Fellow responsibilities include diagnostic sign-out, including histologic review and reporting of all consultation material, and, in conjunction with residents, the in-house GI, hepatic and pancreaticobiliary biopsy and resection material. Gross room supervision of residents and pathology assistants and conference presentations in this subspecialty area is a requirement and occurs in conjunction with attending supervision. A well-defined and supervised clinical, translational, or basic research project is strongly encouraged.
The overall goal of the Fellowship is to provide in-depth exposure to the full spectrum of GI, Hepatic and Pancreaticobiliary Pathology with our faculty, Dr. Mary Bronner, Dr. Kajsa Affolter, Dr. Maria Pletneva (Director of GI Pathology), Dr. Kim Evason, Dr. Frederick Clayton, Dr. Gillian Hale, Dr. Jola Jedrzkiewicz, Dr. Mariana Moreno-Prats, Dr. Cameron Beech, and Dr. Katie Boylan (Fellowship Director).
