Neuropathology Fellowship

Neuropathology Fellowship

This is a rigorous two-year program that prepares our trainees to be competent in both diagnostic and investigational neuropathology. The program is an alliance of remarkable affiliated institutions in the Texas Medical Center which allows access to a high volume of surgical and autopsy material including approximately 3,000 brain and spinal cord biopsies (~1,800 nervous system tumors), 450 autopsies and 200 pediatric/adult neuromuscular biopsies per year.

Our affiliated institutions include a large adult private hospital, Houston Methodist Hospital; the largest children's hospital in the United States, Texas Children's Hospital; a modern public general hospital, Ben Taub Hospital; one of the largest oncology centers in the United States, MD Anderson Cancer Center; and the Harris County Institute for Forensic Sciences. In addition, we have a close relationship with The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston and a broad community case referral base.
