Division of Gastrointestinal and Liver Pathology

Fellowship Programs - Combined Research and Clinical Fellowship

Dr. Ralph Hruban, Director of the Department, provides diagnostic and research experience in pancreatic diseases.

The fellow participates in clinical rounds and in housestaff and medical student teaching. In the second year the fellow is appointed an Assistant by The Johns Hopkins Hospital and takes full responsibility for sign-out of gastrointestinal case material.

There are multiple opportunities for collaborative studies in gastroenterology and in basic research in this and other departments.

In addition, a separate one year fellowship position in GI / Liver Pathology is offered. This fellowship parallels the two-year program, but does not include the sign-out opportunities of the two-year program.
