Neuropathology Fellowship Awarded Continued Accreditation

May 11, 2022

The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) recently awarded continued accreditation to the Neuropathy Fellowship in the Pathology Department at Yale School of Medicine.

The ACGME’s Review Committee for Pathology made its decision at an April 21 meeting. The accreditation is reviewed annually in accordance with the ACGME’s Accreditation System as set forth in its policies and procedures.

Led by Anita Huttner, MD, FACP, the Neuropathology Fellowship at Yale is a two-year program that combines training in surgical and autopsy neuropathology with clinical research. The clinical service further focuses on integrating molecular data into the diagnostic process, making this program a top-tier diagnostic hub for Molecular Neuropathology. There are also many opportunities to be involved in clinical, translational and basic neuroscience research.

The program's clinical activities include evaluating a wide range of surgical and autopsy specimens. In addition, fellows take a prominent role in clinicopathologic and autopsy conferences and assist in training first- and second-year residents.

Applicants must have three years of training in anatomic pathology or four years of combined anatomic and clinical pathology are preferredbut that is <="" span="">not an absolute requirement. Alternatively, Yale is offering an AP/NP track, which combines two years of residency training in anatomic pathology with two years of fellowship training in neuropathology.

For more information, please contact Anita Huttner, MD, FACP, Director of the Neuropathology Program at Yale School of Medicine.
