The Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Medicine and Public Health is offering a one-year GI and Liver Surgical Pathology Subspecialty Fellowship with an appointment as a Clinical Instructor beginning July 1, 2021. This is a non-ACGME certified fellowship which provides one full year of experience in diagnostic gastrointestinal, liver, pancreaticobiliary and transplant pathology. Cases include a wide spectrum of non-neoplastic, neoplastic and allograft pathology, received from the state-of-the-art UW Health Hepatobiliary Oncologic and Transplantation Surgical Services and from the Digestive Health Center (approximately 18,500 GI cases annually, including 450 medical/allograft liver biopsies, 250 extramural consultations and 575 pediatric GI cases). The program is designed to prepare the fellow for a successful career in academic medicine or private practice with a subspecialty focus.
The GI and Liver pathology fellow participates on the GI/Liver subspecialty services, undergoes a frozen section ‘hot seat’ rotation in general pathology, participates in many multidisciplinary conferences (medical liver biopsy, pancreaticobiliary tumor board, UWH/VA regional liver transplant tumor boards, and molecular tumor board), and is involved in teaching of pathology residents and medical students. Based on the evaluation of the candidate’s proficiency and performance, there may be opportunities to be involved in laboratory management projects, independent sign out and resident teaching. Overall the fellowship is aimed at developing academic and leadership skills to thrive as an expert in GI/Liver pathology. Elective time is also available and the fellow is highly encouraged to participate in translational research projects related to GI and Liver pathology.
An M.D., DO or international equivalent, and successful completion of a certified AP or AP/CP U.S.-based pathology residency training program are required. Applicants must be board eligible or board certified in AP or AP/CP, and a permanent Wisconsin medical license is required prior to start date.
Application instructions and link to apply will be available in Spring 2020. You will be required to submit a statement of interest, a current CV and a list of at least three references. In addition, three letters of recommendation must be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org for your application to be considered complete.
