GI Pathology Clinical Fellowship

Clinical Track Fellowship (1 Year Program)


The Gastrointestinal Fellowship (Clinical) at Yale is a one-year program combining training in diagnostic gastrointestinal and hepatic pathology with clinical research. The clinical activities of the Yale Program in Gastrointestinal Pathology focus on the annual evaluation of approximately 15,000 gastrointestinal and pancreatobiliary cases and 1,000 liver cases (including liver transplantation). 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 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.
