This ACGME-accredited fellowship provides robust training in disorders of the luminal GI tract, pancreas and hepatic pathology (medical liver including liver transplantation), preparing trainees for a career in an academic or private practice setting. Five GI pathologists provide clinical service, contribute to the research program of the GI section, and support the GI Pathology training program across four distinct hospital and outpatient settings.
The GI pathology fellow will get exposure to a comprehensive spectrum of gastrointestinal surgical specimens, ranging from small biopsies to complex procedures, as well as hepatobiliary specimens. Training also includes reviewing consult digital slides from community practices in Texas. The fellow will have graduated responsibility in performing operating room consultations (frozen sections and gross examination). The fellow is expected to closely interact with surgeons/clinicians and pathology colleagues from community practice, actively participate in tumor boards, IBD/liver conferences, participate in research projects and will have the opportunity to attend and contribute to numerous didactic and clinical conferences.
Electives in clinical gastroenterology are available.
