Learn more about the faculty's clinical expertise and research
The Genitourinary (GU) Pathology Fellowship is a sub-specialty training program in the Department of Pathology at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. The Fellowship provides extensive exposure to all aspects of genitourinary tumor pathology, including in-depth experience with tumor specimens from the kidney, urinary bladder, prostate and testis. Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center is a well known surgical, oncologic, and research center for GU cancers and as such the GU Pathology fellow will have ample interaction with other clinical and basic science departments associated with this subspecialty throughout our center.
Review and discussion of challenging/interesting and personal consultation cases relevant to genitourinary pathology with the GU Pathology team is integral to the fellowship experience. Moreover, the GU Pathology Fellow has the opportunity to get involved in laboratory-based and/or translational clinical research. In collaboration with clinicians and researchers from various departments and Attending pathologists, the fellow may pursue laboratory projects related to the clinical implications of molecular abnormalities in carcinomas of genitourinary origin.
The GU Pathology Fellow will participate in the interdepartmental Genitourinary Oncology Disease Management Team and attend/participate in interdepartmental conferences related to GU oncology. Periodic presentation at these conferences in the form of formal discussion of the pathologic findings from the patients under discussion is required.
The fellow will serve as a consultant to the Oncologic Pathology Fellows in the orientation, gross dissection and morphologic evaluation of tissue specimens from the genitourinary system. Finally, participation in intradepartmental conferences and didactics spanning many pathologic disciplines is encouraged.
