The Division of Anatomic Pathology at the University of Alabama Medical Center, Birmingham, offers a one-year fellowship experience in Diagnostic Surgical Pathology with subspecialty focus on Breast/GYN Pathology. The University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) Surgical Pathology laboratory performs approximately 50,000 surgical cases yearly, which cover the entire breadth and depth of clinical material. There are especially strong services in Breast Pathology and GYN Pathology. Opportunities for elective rotations in other subspecialty areas exist, including GU, Musculoskeletal, ENT, Transplant, and GI Pathology as well as Cytopathology, Hematopathology, and Molecular Pathology. There are multiple interdisciplinary conferences at UAB in which fellows may actively participate. Fellows are encouraged to participate in ongoing basic, translational or applied research projects in collaboration with the more than two dozen faculty members in the Division, leading to publications and presentations at national meetings. Rotations are entirely at The University of Alabama Hospital. The program is optimized with structured didactic lectures and slide sessions relevant to daily practice. For those having an interest in Pediatric Surgical Pathology, a selected rotation at Children’s of Alabama (adjacent to UAB Hospital) is possible.
