Yale Neuropathology

The Yale Neuropathology Service specializes in the evaluation of disorders involving brain, spinal cord, skeletal muscle, and peripheral nerve for adult and pediatric patients. All faculty members are subspecialty trained and board-certified in neuropathology. Aside from acute, intra-operative frozen section coverage, which is exclusively provided by board-certified neuropathologists, faculty members are also expert consultants for the postmortem assessment of neurological disorders. The Neuropathology Service aims to provide excellent clinical care while incorporating cutting-edge molecular technologies into daily practice for primary and consultation cases. Complex cases are discussed in detail among expert neuropathologists at weekly consensus conferences and ad hoc. All faculty are involved nationally and internationally in professional societies and actively contribute to advancements in the field. The Program also offers a highly competitive ACGME-accredited 2-year fellowship in neuropathology, which prepares for board certification in neuropathology.
