GI/Liver Surgical Pathology Fellowship / Clinical Instructor July 2023 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 and 250 extramural consultations).

The GI/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, and colorectal, pancreaticobiliary, UWH/VA regional liver transplant and molecular tumor boards), and is involved in teaching of pathology residents and medical students. Based on the candidate’s proficiency and performance, there may be opportunities to be involved in laboratory management projects and independent sign out. 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.

Requirements:

  • An MD, DO or international equivalent
  • Successful completion of a certified AP or AP/CP U.S.-based pathology residency training program
  • Board-eligible or board-certified in AP or AP/CP
