Surgical Pathology Fellowship at MetroHealth Medical Center
A major teaching hospital of Case Western Reserve University
in Cleveland, Ohio
July 1, 2020 - June 30, 2021
The Surgical Pathology division of the Department of Pathology at MetroHealth Medical Center offers a one-year fellowship designed for individuals who wish to peruse intense training in Surgical Pathology in an environment that fosters diagnostic confidence through graduated responsibility and independent sign-out, necessary to build diagnostic confidence and maturity. The fellowship provides the necessary training for the fellow to function upon completion, as competent, independent pathologist, in academic setting or in a community-based practice.
The Department of Pathology at MH processes approximately 25.000 cases/year representing benign and malignant pathology, including biopsies, as well as large complex resections, from all organ systems pathology. It is staffed by nine pathologists, experts in GYN, urogenital, breast, GI, hematopathology, ENT and neuropathology, three Ph.D.’s, eight residents, a PA and a cytology fellow.
The fellow is expected to participate in the supervision and teaching of junior residents and medical students and participate in intra- and extramural teaching conferences and tumor boards. In the beginning of the fellowship year, the fellow will work cases up independently on one of the three diagnostic services (approximately 30 cases/day, with a mixture of both biopsy and resection specimens). Upon thorough evaluation of diagnostic accuracy and medical knowledge, the fellow will progress to independently sign-out cases, including frozen sections, with 100% review by staff pathologists, before ending the year functioning independently as junior staff.
Elective time is available, either in cytopathology within the department, or in affiliated Cleveland hospitals, depending on the candidate interest.
Requirements: Board eligibility, or completion of a four-year AP/CP, or three-year AP program, approved by the RCC and ACGME in the USA or Canada.
Stipend: Commensurate with level of training.
Applications: Please submit a CAP fellowship application, three letters of recommendation and a current CV to:
