The University of California, Davis, Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine is seeking candidates for its non-ACGME-certified Surgical Pathology Fellowship for the 2018-19 and 2019-2020 academic years.  Sub-specialty emphasis in either GI or GYN pathology is available (limited to one each per year).

UC Davis offers a one-year Surgical Pathology fellowship program which is designed to prepare the fellow as a diagnostic expert in the interpretation of surgical pathology specimens. Expertise will include; intra-operative consultations (frozen section interpretation), gross examination, biopsy diagnosis/interpretation and appropriate work-up of cancer resections. The fellow in Surgical Pathology will develop an analytical approach to diagnoses, which include the appropriate use of ancillary techniques  (electron microscopy, immunohistochemistry and molecular pathology). Training in this program will encompass consultation to health care staff, residents, pathologists and clinicians including tumor boards and other conferences. Participation in a research project, or in a LEAN/ CQI project is expected. The fellow will also participate in departmental teaching activities for residents and medical students. At completion, the successful fellow should be able to demonstrate the knowledge, poise, maturity and communication skills to effectively function at the level of junior staff/faculty.

The Program Director will select from resident applicants who have preferably had four or more years of training with two years anatomic pathology and two years clinical pathology experience.  Completed applications consist of the following and must be free of gaps of time, whether professional or personal: CV/Resume/CAP standardized form; personal statement, three letters of recommendation (one must be from your Residency Program Director), please address to John Bishop, M.D., Director, Surgical Pathology Fellowship; and your letter of interest or intent.
