Gynecologic Pathology Fellowship


The program is ideal for individuals pursuing academic careers in surgical pathology and/or gynecologic pathology but is not restricted to such individuals. It is designed to be a combination of a fellowship and a junior faculty assistant position of two years duration. Variations of the program are possible, ranging from a single fellowship year to two full years as a faculty assistant.

The program combines advanced training in diagnostic gynecologic pathology with clinical/translational/basic research and teaching. Clinical responsibilities include sign out of in-house material and evaluation of consultation cases. Our fellows are also engaged in research activities, which include clinicopathologic and immunohistochemical studies as well as basic and translational research. Teaching responsibilities include supervision and instruction of residents, presentation of cases at the gynecologic oncology tumor board, colposcopy correlation conference, and reproductive endocrinology and infertility conference.

Current faculty research interests include cervical, endometrial, and ovarian/tubal neoplasia; trophoblastic disease, HPV and tumor genetics.


Minimum of two full years AP (three years preferred). Fellows must be able to obtain a Maryland license prior to starting the fellowship program. Only U.S. Nationals and Foreign Nationals with a permanent resident visa will be considered. The applicant must have passed USMLE Step 3 prior to our review of the application.
