Gastrointestinal and Liver Pathology Fellowship
Open June 20, 2022 through Monday, Jun 19, 2023 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 2024. This fellowship provides training in all aspects of GI, liver, pancreas and biliary tract disease with opportunities for clinical research. The GI service (more than 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 4 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 may also take few weeks of call during the year, as an acting attending on Surgical Pathology service. There will also be active involvement in resident teaching and presenting at the weekly GI/liver tumor board meetings during the fellowship. Funded research opportunities are available within the department and the fellow will be expected to present their research at national meetings.
