Pediatric Pathology Clinical Fellowship Program

Mission Statement

The fellowship in pediatric pathology is a one-year postgraduate course for trainees who have graduated from a general pathology residency, are Board eligible in AP or AP/CP, and wish to pursue a career in academic pediatric pathology.

This program is designed to give participants guided and supervised exposure to the practice of hospital-based pediatric pathology in all its facets. Broad exposure to the surgical and autopsy pathology of childhood and the developing years forms the basis for the program. The aim is that the graduate will be familiar enough with current practices to function as an independent practitioner in pediatric patient care. The graduate should understand the elements of managing a pediatric pathology laboratory, and be familiar with quality assurance practices, and should have chosen an avenue of scholarly inquiry that will lead to a career of investigation.
