Fellowship Program - Mission Statement

The Department of Pathology supports a wide variety of fellowship training. Our principal mission is the training of academic pathologists. Training is provided through extensive clinical, research and teaching opportunities in one of the world's largest Departments of Pathology. Recognizing that the definition of future academic pathologists is broad our subspecialty fellowships encompass a broad spectrum of programs. Using extensive clinical material and conferences, fellows are trained to be experts in their field. With over $6 million in funded annual research activity, fellows are encouraged to participate in biomedical advances and develop their own research programs. Applicants are encouraged to carefully match their personal goals with those offered by individual subspecialty programs listed below.
