New York, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai
- The Icahn School of Medicine Neuropathology division offers a fellowship position in its ACGME-accredited two-year program for July 2021 and 2022.
- We accept one-to-two fellows each year, giving preference to those board-eligible in anatomic/clinical pathology who have completed two-to-three years of anatomic training.
- We are committed to academic excellence and diversity in clinical service, research, and education.
Our program includes the annual examination of over 1,400 surgical and 300 autopsy neuropathology specimens, state-of-the-art molecular diagnostics, and active research opportunities.
With the supervising attendings, neuropathology fellows actively develop their diagnostic skills during sign out on the clinical neuropathology service; learn to integrate molecular pathology
data into their reports; lead neuropathology discussion during joint interdisciplinary tumor board conferences; participate in brain and spinal cord removals and special peripheral nervous system dissections; and attend brain cutting, molecular pathology sign-outs, and educational neuroradiology, neurosurgery, and neuroendocrine conferences.
Specialty rotations at the Mount Sinai Neuromuscular Lab, the Department of Ophthalmology, the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in New York, and both the Alzheimer Disease Research Center
(ADRC) and Manhattan HIV Brain Banks
(MHBB) are also included in the program.
Fellows participate in resident education through the departments of Pathology, Neurology, and Neurosurgery. Scholarly opportunities are available in both years, with an expectation that fellows will present at annual international neuropathology meetings.
Research is an important component of this fellowship and can be adapted to the interest of the applicant, with opportunity for both collaborative or independence-oriented focus on
basic/clinical/computational/translational projects in neuroimmunology (including HIV
and COVID-related projects), tumor genetics/epigenetics, neurodevelopment,
neurodegeneration, and neuropsychiatry.
