Neuropathology Fellowship

Neuropathology Fellowship

This program, accredited by the ACGME, qualifies candidates for board certification in neuropathology and prepares them for academic careers in diagnostic neuropathology and research.

Fellows spend two years in the Division of Neuropathology. The division examines all nervous system tissues from biopsies and autopsies at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center and the Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital. This large and varied volume of material is supplemented by brains sent to Columbia for consultation, particularly in the areas of neurodegenerative diseases.

There is a large volume of neurosurgical specimens (about 1,800 per year) that include tumors, brain biopsies for degenerative diseases, and muscle and nerve biopsies. Fellows examine all specimens and sign out daily with an attending physician. Teaching conferences are held regularly, including weekly brain cuttings, weekly microscopic conferences to review surgical and autopsy cases with all of the staff, weekly brain tumor board conferences, muscle biopsy reviews, and CPCs.
