Breast and Gynecologic Pathology

A two-year fellowship program that provides in-depth knowledge and experience in the field of Breast and Gynecologic Pathology for physicians who have completed their Anatomic Pathology residency training.  The fellowship training program emphasizes practical, academic and administrative aspects of the practice of breast and gynecologic pathology.  The objective of the program is to train pathologists who will handle breast and gynecologic pathology at a subspecialist level. 

The fellow will participate in all aspects of daily sign out of cases and interact with clinical colleagues.  Opportunities will also be provided to gain knowledge and experience in the use of ancillary diagnostic studies such as immunohistochemistry, molecular pathology, cytogenetics and FISH techniques.  The training program also includes extensive exposure to frozen section examination and reporting of consultation material. 

The fellow will have the chance to present cases and deliver lectures at various clinico-pathologic conferences and participate in the teaching of pathology residents, as well as residents and fellows rotating through the department from other disciplines.  Opportunities for collaborative research are available and fellows are encouraged to develop and actively pursue their research interests.
