GI/Liver Surgical Pathology Fellowship/Clinical Instructor July 2024 Opening

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/Liver Surgical Pathology Subspecialty Fellowship with an appointment as a Clinical Instructor beginning July 1, annually. This is a non-ACGME certified fellowship which provides one 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 GI and Liver pathology fellow participates on the GI/Liver subspecialty services, undergoes a frozen section ‘hot seat’ rotation in general pathology and presents at 4 regional multidisciplinary tumor boards (pancreaticobiliary, colorectal, liver transplant and molecular), the medical liver biopsy conference and AP/ GI-liver journal club. Based on the evaluation of the candidate’s proficiency and performance, there may be opportunities for independent sign out and resident/medical student teaching. Elective time is also available, and the fellow is highly encouraged to participate in translational research projects related to GI and liver pathology, utilizing the services of the fully equipped TRIP labs. Overall, the fellowship is aimed at developing academic and leadership skills to thrive as an expert in GI/Liver pathology, in either academic medicine or private practice with a subspecialty focus.
