The Gastrointestinal Pathology fellowship at Yale is a one-year program combining training in diagnostic gastrointestinal and hepatic pathology with clinical research. There is an opportunity to spend additional years in basic research. The clinical activities of the Program in Gastrointestinal Pathology include reporting on about 10,000 gastrointestinal and pancreatobiliary specimens and over 500 liver biopsies per year. The fellow will take a major role in clinicopathologic conferences and will assist in the training of first and second year residents. Strengths of the program include the dedicated nature of the gastrointestinal pathology service, the strong and diverse clinical gastroenterology and hepatology programs at Yale, and extensive teaching materials within the department. Research may be undertaken as part of active interdepartmental research programs aimed at understanding the pathobiology and improving the diagnosis and management of gastrointestinal diseases. There is a strong and long established interest in diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, liver, biliary tract, and pancreas at Yale, with outstanding research programs in each area. There are opportunities to work with research groups in the Department of Pathology and such departments as Medicine, Pediatrics, Surgery, Cell Biology, Physiology, Biology, Public Health, Epidemiology, and the Yale Cancer Center.
Three years of training in anatomic pathology or four years combined anatomic and clinical pathology.
Stipends commensurate with hospital policy.
Applications should be submitted by November 15, for the fellowship year 19 months following.
