Surgical Pathology Fellowship

Surgical Pathology Fellowship

The cornerstone of the surgical pathology fellowship at UVM Medical Center and the University of Vermont is the Provisional Diagnosis Service, or "hotseat." It is an exciting rotation in which the senior resident or fellow is responsible for providing provisional diagnoses and triage for all resident bench cases processed in the Surgical Pathology Division.

The hot seat is located in the hub of our sign out area directly across from the cutting room and histology and in the same suite with the attending staff, surgical pathology office, and Cytology Division. Hot seat rotations are each one month long because of the intensity of this service.
