Surgical Pathology Fellowship

    The Department of Pathology at the University of Utah School of Medicine offers a one-year fellowship program in surgical pathology. This fellowship is designed to give the fellow experience at the junior faculty level, including sign-out of surgical pathology cases.

    The fellowship is based at the Huntsman Cancer Institute at the University of Utah. Training in general surgical pathology is emphasized. We have a great variety of interesting and challenging cases on a daily basis, including breast, gynecologic, gastrointestinal, genitourinary, pulmonary, head and neck, skin, and soft tissue/bone pathology. Electives are available in cytopathology, hematopathology, neuropathology, gastrointestinal, renal pathology, and dermatopathology. Research activities are available and encouraged. The fellows will be expected to teach surgical pathology residents and medical students.

    The overall goal of the fellowship is to provide comprehensive, broad-based training in surgical pathology.
