Renal and Genitourinary Pathology Fellowship
The Department of Pathology at Yale School of Medicine is currently seeking applicants for a fellowship position in combined renal and genitourinary pathology starting July 1, 2023. The Renal & Genitourinary Pathology fellowship program at Yale is a one-year fellowship program that aims to provide outstanding training in diagnostic pathology of medical renal biopsies and genitourinary tumor biopsies. The fellowship training is integrated in both the renal and genitourinary pathology services at Yale, which are directed by Gilbert Moeckel, M.D., Ph.D., Professor of Pathology and Director of Renal Pathology and Electron Microscopy Laboratory, and Peter Humphrey, M.D., Professor of Pathology, Director of Genitourinary Pathology. During the 12 months of training, the fellow will be involved in the diagnostic assessment of 1,000 kidney/EM and 1,000 genitourinary specimens.
Activities and Strengths
The fellow will be involved in teaching pathology residents the foundation of renal pathology and will present kidney biopsy cases at the Nephrology CPC and statewide renal biopsy conferences. The fellow will also present cases at the genitourinary tumor board meeting and will give didactic conferences to the urology residents as part of the urology department teaching series. Over the course of the year, the fellow will have a graduating responsibility in the work-up and write-up of cases. The fellow will be further encouraged to prepare clinically oriented research papers for publication.
The qualified fellowship applicant should have a minimum of three years training in an ACGME accredited anatomic or four years in a combined anatomic/clinical pathology residency program. The candidate should be eligible for board certification.
Stipends commensurate with hospital policy.
We have filled our position for the 2024-2025 academic year and will begin accepting applications for the 2025-2026 academic year in April 2023.
