An accredited training program at Los Angeles County + University of Southern California (LAC+USC) Medical Center since 2007, the surgical pathology fellowship has long been a vital part of the anatomic pathology training system. At LAC+USC, fellows perform junior attending duties including frozen section diagnosis, intra-operative consultations and diagnostic sign-out with the residents. Extensive autonomy is encouraged with strong faculty support.
LAC+USC is affiliated with the Keck Medical Center of USC, which is mainly composed of Keck Hospital and Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center, where fellows also perform frozen sections, intra-operative consultations, gross examination and final pathologic diagnosis of surgical cases.
Fellows participate in tumor boards, interdepartmental conferences, resident teaching conferences, journal club, and teaching conferences for the fellows of the LAC+USC Department of Medical Oncology, as well as medical student teaching. The 4-5 blocks of elective time allow the fellow additional experiences in the various subspecialty areas of her/his interest. The Keck School of Medicine is home to a vibrant scientific community and ample translational and collaborative research opportunities are available to trainees.
