Open July 1st, 2020 through Wednesday, Jun 30, 2021 at 11:59pm (Pacific Time)
The Department of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine at the University of California, Irvine is now accepting applications for a 1-year fellowship in GI and liver pathology, starting July 2022. This fellowship provides training in all aspects of GI, liver, pancreas, and biliary tract disease with opportunities for clinical research. The GI service (approximately 8,000 cases annually) includes full range of neoplastic and non-neoplastic conditions with special emphasis on IBD, colon cancers, gastric dysplasia/carcinoma, celiac disease and Barrett esophagus. We also have an active pancreas (more than 100 pancreatic resections/year) and liver (more than 250 biopsies and resections/year) service. The fellow will also be exposed to cytopathologic specimens from EUS guided aspirations from the GI and pancreato-biliary tracts.
The fellow participates with 3 fellowship trained GI/liver pathologists in sign-out of GI and liver surgical and biopsy material, frozen sections and consultation cases. The position is structured for graduated responsibility to the level of junior faculty and sign out privileges may be granted during the second half of the fellowship. The fellow also takes a few weeks of call during the year, as an acting attending on Surgical Pathology service. The fellow will be actively involved in resident teaching and also present at the weekly GI/liver tumor board meetings. Funded research opportunities are available within the department and fellows will be expected to present their research at national meetings.
