The Department of Pathology offers a one year non-ACGME accredited General Surgical Pathology Fellowship with one position available annually. The fellowship is based at Rush University Medical Center, Chicago, Illinois, an academic tertiary-care medical center with an ongoing accredited AP/CP pathology residency program.
Under the direction of David J. Cimbaluk, MD, the fellowship is intended to provide an advanced training experience with combined exposure to core rotations as well as targeted exposure to one or more pathology subspecialties in elective rotations. The core rotations in general surgical pathology include breast, lung, endocrine, derm, GYN, GI, liver and GU. The subspecialties available for elective rotations include these and molecular, renal and heme path. Our department has a large volume of cases (about 40,000 surgical and 11,000 cytology cases per year) signed out by expert subspecialty pathologists.
