The John H. Yardley Fellowship in Gastrointestinal Pathology

Dr. John Yardley The campaign to endow the John H. Yardley Fellowship in Gastrointestinal Pathology was launched in April 1999 and honors John H. Yardley, M.D. former Baxley Professor and Director of Pathology. Dr. Yardley's legacy is perhaps best expressed in his teaching of fellows. Over the years, he has instilled in his fellows a lifetime love of research, patient care, and teaching.

The John H. Yardley Fellowship was designed to promote the research activities and/or clinical training of promising pathologists pursuing advanced training in the field of gastrointestinal disease in the Department. Even more importantly, his fellowship program fosters intellectual curiosity, creating leaders who have pushed the specialty of gastrointestinal pathology to new heights.

This fellowship is now almost fully endowed and we are pleased to announce that the current recipient of this fellowship is a talented young pathologist, Jacqueline Birkness, M.D. Her fellowship activities include patient care, teaching and research.
