Post-Sophomore Fellowship with a Masters of Science in Pathology

cytopathologyThe Department of Pathology at the University Of Utah School Of Medicine offers a one-year Post-Sophomore Fellowship with a Masters of Science in Pathology. This fellowship is designed to consolidate the student’s understanding of basic mechanisms of disease, enhance their knowledge of normal and pathologic anatomy, and develop an awareness for the relationship a clinical laboratory has with effective patient care. This program is well suited for students who plan to enter fields other than pathology, as well as students with a specialty interest in pathology. Students must have successfully completed the first two years of medical school and be in good standing with their medical school to be eligible for the Program.  

The fellow will function similar to a first year pathology resident and will be exposed to various anatomic and clinical pathology subspecialties.  Fellowship responsibilities include working closely with faculty members, fellows, and residents in gross and microscopic diagnoses to gain firsthand experience in autopsy pathology, surgical pathology, clinical pathology and teaching. Students may be required to prepare case material and information for presentations for departmental conferences.  Elective rotations are available, or research months with the purpose of completing a supervised clinical, translational or basic research project may be offered.

The overall goal of the Fellowship is to provide in-depth exposure to the full spectrum of anatomic and clinical pathology along with subspecialties, with our faculty members, fellows, and residents.
