We are accepting applications now for the 2021-2022 academic year.
The Department of Pathology and Microbiology at the University of Nebraska Medical Center has an unaccredited one-year Gastrointestinal Fellowship to begin July 1. This fellowship will provide advanced training in gastrointestinal surgical pathology and is designed to ease the transition from residency to independent sign-out. Fellows will be expected to sign out independently in the last three months of the fellowship. Attention will be given to fulfill the needs of the individual in terms of gaining skills towards pursuing a career in either private practice or academics. The curriculum consists of advanced rotations in adult/pediatric GI and liver transplant pathology. One month of dedicated time for research is provided. The surgical pathology division at the Nebraska Medical Center accessions more than 40,000 specimens with a wide range of neoplastic and non-neoplastic pathology. The 20+ pathologists on staff have a wide variety of subspecialty expertise to further enhance the fellow's training. The Nebraska Medical Center is a world-renowned transplant center and the Fred and Pamela Buffet Cancer Center is one of only a few in the country that holds the designation of a NCI cancer center. There is also full access to state-of-the-art facilities in molecular and ultra structural techniques.
UNMC, and its hospital partner, Nebraska Medicine, are home to the NCI-Designated Fred and Pamela Buffett Cancer Center, Munroe-Meyer Institute for Genetics and Rehabilitation, Lied Transplant Center, Michael F. Sorrell Center for Health Science Education and Nebraska Public Health Laboratory, which will provide enhanced experiences in molecular diagnostics.
