Opening for 2022
The Department of Pathology at UTSW offers a one-year ACGME accredited fellowship in Molecular Genetic Pathology. The fellowship offers training in a wide variety of areas, including hematology/oncology, infectious diseases, mendelian disorders, cytogenetics, and medical genetics. Fellows rotate through the Molecular Diagnostics labs at UT Southwestern and Children’s Health Children’s Medical Center. The fellowship also incorporates clinical rotations in Clinical Genetics at Children’s and Parkland Hospital, and Cancer Genetics at Simmons Comprehensive Cancer Center. At the completion of this program, the fellow will be eligible to take the Molecular Genetic Pathology board examination.
Fellows will participate in assay sign utilizing various methodology including real-time PCR, Sanger, Illumina and Ion Torrent next generation sequencing, capillary electrophoresis fragment analysis, and Sequenom mass spectrometry. All of our previous fellows have led a new assay validation project. Fellows will participate in journal clubs, molecular and clinical conferences, and can attend UT Southwestern basic science and clinical conferences to fit their interests. Involvement in a translational or clinical research project is expected. Elective rotations in cytogenetics, FISH, DNA arrays, and HLA are available. Research projects can be tailored around each fellow’s personal interests.
Successful candidates will be Texas medical licensed or eligible, board certified or board-eligible, and have completed an ACGME-accredited Anatomic and/or Clinical Pathology residency.
