Originally accredited by the ACGME in 1974, the University of Southern California/LAC+USC Neuropathology Fellowship Training Program has a long history of successfully preparing fellows for eligibility for certification in neuropathology by the American Board of Pathology subspecialty examination. We offer a two-year training program in neuropathology.
Training includes extensive “hands-on” experience at Los Angeles County and University of Southern California Medical Center (LAC+USC), Keck Medical Center of the University of Southern California (USC), and Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles (CHLA). Trainees participate in sign- out of a broad array of neuropathology that includes adult and pediatric tumors, neuromuscular biopsies, neurodegenerative work-up, and autopsy CNS pathology. Fellows learn to function effectively in multiple different systems of medicine: private practice (Keck Medical Center of USC), government-funded healthcare (LAC+USC), and donor-driven healthcare (CHLA).
