Breast/GYN Surgical Pathology Fellowship/Clinical Instructor (Opening for July 2024 and 2025)

The Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Medicine and Public Health is offering a one-year non-accredited Breast/GYN Surgical Pathology Fellowship with an appointment as a Clinical Instructor beginning July 1, annually.

The breast and gynecologic pathology section is staffed by 9 subspecialty pathologists. Our subspecialty team works closely with 8 gynecologic oncologists, 6 breast surgeons, 4 breast oncologists, 2 radiation oncologists, and 8 breast imaging experts who are part of the NCI recognized Carbone Cancer Center and NAPBC-accredited Breast Center. We have a volume of approximately 12,000 breast and gynecologic specimens per year. The surgical pathology division has state-of-the-art facilities, including telepathology and whole slide imaging software.

The fellowship is designed to provide advanced training in breast and gynecologic pathology and is suited for both academically-orientated pathologists as well as those interested in community practice. The individual will perform the duties of a breast and gynecologic diagnostic surgical pathologist. After a year’s training, the candidate will be proficient in the work-up and diagnosis of routine and complex cases including frozen sections, immunohistochemistry and molecular diagnostics. The candidate will be required to fulfill daily responsibilities, participate in multidisciplinary conferences, and complete at least one research project during the fellowship.

Based on the candidate’s proficiency and performance, there may be opportunities for being involved in laboratory management projects, independent sign out, and resident teaching.

An MD, MD/PhD or DO 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.

Please apply through Jobs at UW. You will be required to submit a cover letter, current CV and three letters of recommendation.
