This one-year fellowship located at Evanston Hospital, Evanston, Illinois, is designed to develop diagnostic expertise in general surgical pathology for either academic or community settings. One fellow will be accepted each year.

The year includes core rotations in general surgical pathology, frozen section, and consultations. Elective time is available for focused subspecialty rotations in cytopathology, dermatopathology, hematopathology, molecular genetic pathology, and research under the supervision of senior faculty. The scientific environment is particularly well suited for translational research.
Fellow responsibilities include supervision and teaching of residents and medical students, frozen sections, dissection of surgical specimens for microscopic review, workup of consultation cases, and presentations at departmental and interdepartmental clinical conferences (tumor boards).

The SP fellow will see a wide range of pathology with an emphasis on breast, pancreatic, and prostatic specimens. All core rotations are at the Evanston campus, which includes specimens from Glenbrook, Highland Park, and Skokie Hospitals (approximately 67,000 surgicals).


Candidates must be board certified or board eligible in anatomic pathology or combined AP/CP.
