Women’s Health Pathology Fellowship


This Fellowship is a clinically oriented one-year program in diagnostic gynecologic and breast pathology. The Fellowship consists of a combined gynecologic and breast pathology training with the possibility of gradual transition during the second half of the year to independent sign-out, functioning as a junior faculty member.

The Fellowship program benefits from the outstanding clinical material at Yale New Haven Hospital’s world class breast and gynecologic oncology services. In addition to the in-house case material both services receive consultation cases from all over the U.S. and around the world. This setting generates approximately 15,000 gynecologic and 3,000-4,000 breast specimens per year. The teaching faculty are highly experienced and enjoy world-class reputation in diagnostic breast and gynecologic pathology.

Educational Objectives

  • Competency in the morphologic diagnosis of all types of breast and gynecologic specimens
  • Ability to incorporate molecular and other ancillary techniques into the practice of breast and gynecologic pathology
  • Ability to understand the clinical impact of the diagnoses of breast and gynecologic diseases
  • Ability to communicate pathological diagnosis with clinicians and their service teams

Primary commitment will be given to an active clinical diagnostic service and patient care at YNHH. Fellows have a major role in the preparation and presentation in Breast and Gynecologic Tumor Boards and other clinical conferences. The fellow education is through assigned responsibilities, supplemented by seminars given by Yale faculty and invited lecturers to the Department of Pathology. Fellows also participate in the training of first- and second-year residents rotating in breast and gynecologic pathology services. In addition, there are opportunities to participate in translational research projects under faculty guidance based on the fellow’s interest and progress in the clinical aspect of training.


Three years of training in anatomic pathology or four years combined anatomic and clinical pathology; eligibility for AP Board exam; eligibility for CT medical license. U.S. permanent residency or U.S. citizenship is required. AP Board certification is desirable.
