The Neuropathology fellowship at Yale is a two-year program combining training in surgical and autopsy neuropathology with clinical research. There are also abundant opportunities to get involved in basic neuroscience research.
Strengths of the program include a remarkable diversity of specimens at Yale, abundant research opportunities, and a specific focus on procurement of nervous system tissues for diagnosis as well as clinical and basic research.
The clinical activities of the Neuropathology program include the evaluation of a wide variety of surgical and autopsy specimens. The fellow will take a prominent role in clinicopathologic conferences and will assist in the training of first and second year residents.
Three years of training in anatomic pathology or four years combined anatomic and clinical pathology are preferred, but not an absolute requirement.
Stipends commensurate with hospital policy.
