General Surgical Pathology Fellowship (Openings in July 2023 and 2024)

This one-year non-ACGME certified fellowship provides a competitive, all-around educational experience designed to develop outstanding broad diagnostic and leadership skills in surgical pathology. The general surgical pathology fellow will participate in core subspecialty sign out including GI/Hepatobiliary, Breast/Gynecologic, GU, ENT, Thoracic, Bone and Soft Tissue pathology, Frozen Section “hot seat”, and Outreach Pathology at Meriter Hospital, which includes a combination of general surgical pathology sign out duties. The program is flexible and suits both academically-oriented fellows, possibly as a bridge year to a subspecialty fellowship, and those aiming for general private practice. Unique educational opportunities that are often limited in many similar fellowships nationwide can be offered based on the future needs of the trainee.

The fellow works in the fully subspecialized, academic surgical pathology division that accessions approximately 55,000 in-house and 1800 extramural surgical pathology cases annually, and is staffed by 35 surgical pathologists representing all subspecialties including renal, pediatric and transplant pathology. The division provides anatomic pathology services for the University of Wisconsin Hospital, the Middleton Memorial VA hospital and the UW Health Outreach hospitals. The department has a modern workspace with widely adopted telepathology services, and in-house research (TRIP) and molecular diagnostic laboratories.

An MD or DO and successful completion of a certified 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.
