Openings for 2021-2022 and 2022-2023
Located in beautiful East Tennessee, the Oncologic Surgical Pathology Fellowship Program is based in the Department of Pathology at the University of Tennessee Medical Center Knoxville. One, one-year fellowship is available beginning each July 1. Our department offers a variety of excellent educational opportunities including high volume, case complexity and diversity of cases. Case volumes per year averages over 30,000 surgical specimens, 50,000 cytology accessions, including 5,000 non-gynecologic specimens and 1,200 fine needle aspirations. The fellow is given responsibility in signing out with appropriate supervision by senior faculty. Teaching activities include an unknown case conference, journal club, case presentations, conference presentation, and research presentations where applicable. Rotations include gross room and sign-out, special techniques: electron microscopy, molecular pathology, flow cytometry, etc.
A wide spectrum of specimens (GU, GI, renal, lung, liver, muscle, brain, skin, etc.) provide extensive experience. The fellow participates in interdepartmental conferences and has an active role in supervising and teaching pathology residents. A research project is not a requirement during the fellowship year, however it is highly encouraged, and supported. The Department of Pathology, which includes over twenty faculty, has an excellent information technology base (Cerner/ PowerChart/ CoPath) and incorporates state-of-the-art facilities.
