J-1 Visa

The J-1 visa is the required visa for international trainees. This policy is governed by the University of Utah Office of Graduate Medical Education and applies to all Department of Pathology fellowships, regardless of program accreditation or associated degree type.


Interested candidates should submit cover letter with personal statement, curriculum vitae, CAP Standardized Fellowship Application, and three letters of recommendation to Fellowship Director Kristin H. Karner, MD, or Fellowship Coordinator Leslie Calvert. We use a rolling admissions process, thus early application is recommended. All of our slots for the 2023-24 year have been filled, but will begin accepting applications for the 2024-25 year beginning in April 2022.
