This is a one-year Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME)-accredited program in tumor pathology during which fellows are actively engaged in the examination of anatomic pathology material submitted to the Department of Pathology under the supervision of the attending staff.
The material comprises over 60,000 surgical specimens (including 20,000 departmental consults) and 45 autopsies per year.
The educational program’s philosophy involves direct handling of large volumes of interesting and complicated cases by the fellows. Rotations are organized by subspecialty, including breast, gastrointestinal, genitourinary, gynecologic, thoracic, hematopathology, head and neck, soft tissue and bone, dermatopathology, neuropathology, and intraoperative consultations (frozen sections). An elective period is also provided. Participation in research projects by the fellows is encouraged.
Length of Program
The fellowship is available to individuals who have completed training in pathology in an ACGME-accredited residency program. Board-eligibility in either AP, AP/CP is required by the beginning of the fellowship in Oncologic Pathology.
All qualified applicants are welcome, but preference will be given to those committed to an academic career in Pathology. A definite attempt will be made to identify individuals interested in combining two pathology fellowships offered at Memorial Sloan Kettering under the assumption that this experience should provide them with a strong basis for a successful career in Academic Pathology.
