New York, Roswell Park Cancer Institute
Oncologic Surgical Pathology Fellowship
Openings for 2019 and 2020
Roswell Park Cancer Institute (RPCI) offers an ACGME-accredited one-year Fellowship in Oncologic Surgical Pathology.
RPCI, founded in 1898, is the oldest NCI-funded Comprehensive Cancer Center. The environment is fast-paced, dynamic, collegial, and exciting!
The Oncologic Surgical Pathology Fellowship provides advanced training in neoplastic diseases of GYN, Breast, GI, GU, Pulmonary, Head and Neck, Endocrine, Skin, Brain, Bone, Soft Tissue, and Hematopoietic systems. Fellows will spend time on the surgical pathology service and have protected time for research. There is an opportunity to gain additional skills in diagnostic molecular pathology or in one of the world's best flow cytometry labs, and also in solid tumor cytogenetics with capabilities in FISH and interphase analysis during your elective time. Elective rotations in cytopathology and hematopathology are also possible.
Fellows are complemented by Residents and Medical Students, enabling ample opportunity for teaching and graduated responsibility. The Fellows are an integral part of patient care at RPCI, and their participation in disease site specific multidisciplinary tumor boards, while serving an educational purpose, also ensures the optimum quality of patient care. Seminars from Faculty within and outside the Department will supplement the Fellow's education. The complexity of cases, coupled with the large volume of cases allows Fellows to become proficient in the diagnosis of neoplastic diseases. Fellowships may be individualized, and a second year as Chief Fellow is possible.
Requirements: Because of the demanding nature of the diseases encountered, only Residents who will complete their training in an ACGME-accredited Program by the Fellowship start date will be considered. In addition, candidates must be eligible for a New York State Medical License or Limited Permit.
