The neuropathology fellowship at the University of Alabama at Birmingham is accredited by the ACGME and meets the requirements towards board certification in neuropathology. The program accepts one fellow in each year of training for the two-year fellowship program. We seek to train pathologists or other physicians with appropriate neuroscience training for careers in academic neuropathology. One year of fellowship is on clinical service and the second year provided as a year of research experience. The UAB Division of Neuropathology has a broad catchment area, with specimens originating from University Hospital, the Birmingham Veterans Affairs Medical Center, Children's of Alabama Hospital, and the Medical Examiner's System of Alabama, as well as an active consultation service. Research opportunities in many different disciplines are available, with numerous neuroscience subcenters in the University.

Board eligibility or certification in anatomic pathology or AP/CP; additionally, a license to practice medicine in Alabama, which requires successful completion of USMLE Steps 1, 2 and 3, is needed.

Commensurate with year of postgraduate training.
