GI Pathology Research Fellowship

Research Track Fellowship (3 Year Program: 1 year clinical and 2 year research)


The Gastrointestinal Fellowship (Research) at Yale is a three-year program combining one year of training in diagnostic gastrointestinal, hepatic and pancreatic pathology with two years of laboratory-based research. Strengths of the program include a dedicated gastrointestinal pathology service, the strong and diverse clinical gastroenterology and hepatology programs at Yale, extensive teaching materials within the department, and a superb research environment. 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). During the clinical year the fellow will play a major role in clinicopathologic conferences and will assist in the training of residents. During the two years of laboratory-based research the fellow will work with any of a wide array of established investigators in a basic or translational problem related to the gastrointestinal tract, pancreas or liver. Yale hosts many outstanding research programs that are germane to the aims of the GI Research Fellowship Program. These are based in a variety of departments that include Pathology, Digestive Diseases, the Yale Liver Center and the Yale Comprehensive Cancer Center; all are open to qualified trainees. This fellowship is intended to prepare academically oriented pathologists for an investigative career with competency in both laboratory-based research and diagnostic pathology of the GI and liver.


Three years of training in anatomic pathology or four years combined anatomic and clinical pathology with board eligibility. M.D., Ph.D. preferred, but M.D. with research experience will be considered.


Stipends commensurate with PGY-level and School Policy.


We have filled our positions for the 2022-2023 academic year and will begin accepting applications for the 2023-2024 academic year in April 2021.
