Neuropathology Fellowship

Neuropathology Fellowship

The Department of Pathology offers a combined AP/NP residency/fellowship program for applicants who want an integrated, contiguous training program.

The overall goals of the Neuropathology Training Program are twofold. The first is to provide postgraduate medical instruction that will culminate in the quality of clinical skills commensurate with successful board examination in Neuropathology. The second is to provide training in specialty and experimental neuropathology. These provide a suitable foundation of experimental neuroscience and technical expertise to enable the trainee to better understand the basic neurosciences as they relate to neurologic disease and translational research in neuropathology.

The objectives of the Training Program are designed to provide instruction in the 6 major competencies as defined by the ACGME, and to provide exposure to the types and quantities of cases as defined in the ACGME “Program Requirements for Graduate Medical Education in Neuropathology.”

The educational philosophy of the Program is that the discipline of neuropathology is firmly rooted in a solid academic background, whether it is practiced in a traditional academic institution, a community/private practice setting, or a forensic setting. The primary goal of our training program is to prepare candidates for an academically-oriented career that emphasizes an enduring commitment to advancing the field of neuropathology and that encompasses any combination of clinical neuropathology diagnosis, translational and basic research, and teaching.

The two-year Neuropathology residency (fellowship) Program is ACGME accredited and also available to any applicant who has completed two years of anatomic pathology training in another accredited Anatomic Pathology Program. Preference is given to applicants for the combined AP/NP track.
