Surgical Pathology Fellowship (Florida)
The Surgical Pathology Fellowship provides extensive and advanced comprehensive training under the supervision of experienced attending pathologists to prepare fellows for independent practice in either academic or private-practice settings.
The fellows have exposure to cases from several different subspecialties (including lung, gastrointestinal, esophageal, bowel, hepatology, breast, heart, hepatobiliary and kidney) and are expected to develop confidence and accuracy in diagnostic surgical pathology. Cases include biopsy material, resections and frozen sections.
Fellows participate in clinically relevant research and review outside consultation cases. They also participate in intra- and interdepartmental conferences as well as subspecialty conferences.
Additionally, fellows participate in the education of residents, medical students and other allied health staff, promoting personalized, integrated care using advanced models of teamwork to meet the needs of the patient. Two months of elective time is tailored to the specific needs of each fellow.
The Surgical Pathology Fellowship is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).
The Surgical Pathology Fellowship was approved in 2012. Currently, one fellow will complete this fellowship annually.
