Thoracic and Transplant Pathology Fellowship (Opening July 2024)

Our one-year non-ACGME certified fellowship is designed to provide advanced training in thoracic and transplant-related pathology and is suited for both academically-orientated pathologists as well as those who are interested in pursuing community practice with a subspecialty focus. The fellow will perform the duties of a thoracic diagnostic surgical pathologist in the department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine with additional duties in other areas of transplant pathology depending on the fellow’s interest. Overall, the fellowship is aimed at developing academic and leadership skills to thrive as an expert in thoracic pathology.

The thoracic pathology service is a busy subspecialty of our surgical pathology division at the UW-Madison School of Medicine and Public Health (SMPH), providing pathologic support services to a dynamic cardiothoracic surgical program with an active heart and lung transplant program. Beyond the surgical specialties, this service frequently interacts with general, interventional, and transplant pulmonologists and cardiologists, as well as thoracic radiologists, medical oncologists, and radiation oncologists.

An MD 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.

For complete details and to apply, go to Jobs at UW: You will be required to submit a cover letter referencing PVL264623, a current CV and a single document containing letters of recommendation from three references.
