Overview

The Division of Anatomic Pathology at the University of Alabama (UAB) Medical Center, Birmingham, offers a one-year Fellowship/Instructorship position in Diagnostic Gynecologic Pathology with advanced comprehensive training experience, graduated responsibilities, and sign out privileges. The Gynecologic Pathology Section at UAB provides diagnostic interpretations of routine gynecology and gynecologic oncology specimens for UAB Hospital, satellite clinics, and O'Neil Comprehensive Cancer Center patients. It receives consultations that serve UAB Pathology outreach services (CPPP), other local and regional institutions, providing comprehensive review of the cases. From the approximately 50,000 surgical pathology accessions performed at UAB Surgical Pathology laboratory, about 4,500 represent gynecologic pathology specimens, including in-house and consultation material.

The program is optimized with structured didactic lectures and slide sessions relevant to daily practice. Rotations take place at The University of Alabama Hospital. For those with an interest in Perinatal and Placental Pathology, ongoing rotation through the MDL service is possible. Combined GYN/GU and Breast/GYN one-year fellowship options are also available.
