Forensic Pathology Fellowship
Next Opening 2023-2024
This one-year ACGME-accredited fellowship seeks to train the next generation of leaders in forensic medicine. This comprehensive training program splits time between the offices serving Wayne (Pop. 1,690,000) and Washtenaw (Pop. 420,000) counties, providing a diverse training experience in both a large metropolitan center and suburban community in association with a world-class academic center. Fellows work directly with up to eleven forensic pathologists who are all board-eligible or board-certified and hold faculty appointments with U of M, as well as with photographers, medicolegal death investigators, anatomic pathologists’ assistants, autopsy technicians, and clerical staff. This unique training experience offers a breadth of clinically complex case material, courtroom testimony, and unlimited educational and research opportunities. Fellows gain experience and training in specialized autopsy techniques, photography, crime scene investigation, toxicology, anthropology, odontology, criminalistics, testimony, and administrative and managerial techniques. Fellows participate in teaching at both locations, through didactic lectures and hands-on learning and participation in interdepartmental, local, regional, and national conferences. The Pathology Department provides access to a world-class faculty with available consultants in each subspecialty, educational programs, and financial support for education and research. The Department emphasizes programs in quality, safety and improvement, education and research with the goal of a peer-reviewed publication during the fellowship.
