Surgical Pathology Fellowship
Opening for July 2021
The Oregon Health & Science University Department of Pathology has one one-year Surgical Pathology Fellowship position open for 2021. The fellowship curriculum builds on the trainee’s prior anatomic pathology residency with progressive responsibilities to prepare our fellows for independent surgical pathology sign-out in private practice or academic settings.
As the major tertiary care referral center for the entire state of Oregon, OHSU offers a full spectrum of surgical pathology material, averaging 22,000 surgical cases per year. Our subspecialized service structure provides enhanced training opportunities as fellows spend focused weeks studying GI, GU, head and neck, gyn, breast, pediatric and soft tissue/bone cases. Assigned responsibilities include initial interpretation of biopsies, resection specimens and frozen sections. Along with PAs and attendings, surgical pathology fellows also help provide oversight to residents in the cutting room, offering consultation and expertise for complex specimens; though no grossing is required by fellows.
The fellowship may include up to three months of elective time, including your choice of rotations in hematopathology, dermatopathology, renal pathology, neuropathology, cytopathology, cytogenetics, molecular pathology or other subspecialties. Surgical pathology fellows have multiple opportunities to teach at case conferences and multi-disciplinary tumor boards. Fellows receive an educational allowance of $2500 per year. Participation in clinical research activities is encouraged and financial support above and beyond the educational allowance is provided for travel to conferences when fellows present.
Community: Located on a scenic hill overlooking downtown Portland, the OHSU campus is less than 90 minutes from Mt. Hood, the Columbia River Gorge and the beautiful Oregon coast, providing endless opportunities for outdoor recreation. OHSU is an Equal Opportunity, Affirmative Action Employer.
Requirements: Completion of Residency in Anatomic Pathology or Anatomic Pathology / Clinical Pathology.
Stipends: The stipend is commensurate with the year of postgraduate training.
