Position description

The Department of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine at UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine has an unexpected opening for one fellowship position in gastrointestinal/liver pathology for the academic year of 2022-2023. This is a one-year fellowship, during which the importance of clinicopathological interaction for optimal diagnostic interpretation is stressed. The program historically has had a well-defined core of responsibilities outlined for the fellow and has also allowed considerable flexibility for the fellow to develop clinical and academic skills important for career development. The core responsibilities include preparing cases of GI, liver and pancreaticobiliary diseases for a core of surgical pathology faculty with subspecialty expertise, independent signing-out under close supervision, and presenting at various clinical conferences. Research activities are strongly encouraged.
