The Division of Anatomic Pathology at the University of Alabama Center, Birmingham, offers a one-year fellowship experience in Diagnostic Gastrointestinal Tract Pathology.  The University of Alabama at Birmingham Surgical Pathology laboratory performs approximately 38,000 evaluations per year which cover the entire breadth and depth of clinical material.  Over 10% of these represent GI, pancreas and hepatobiliary tree related specimen types.  In addition, the UAB Surgical Pathology section also has strong diagnostic services in GYN Oncology, Surgical Oncology, Musculoskeletal Oncology, ENT Oncology, Dermatopathlogy, Cytopathology, and Transplant Pathology to which the GI Pathology Fellowship can be exposed via elective opportunities.  Fellows are strongly encouraged to participate in on-going basic, translational or applied research projects.  Rotations are entirely at The University of Alabama Hospital and the physically connected Birmingham VA Medical Center. 

Applicants who are AP or AP/CP board eligible or board certified are preferred and must be graduate of medical schools approved by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME).  Occasionally, fellows are accepted in the middle of their training.
