The Genitourinary Pathology Fellowship program at IU School of Medicine provides comprehensive training in all aspects of genitourinary pathology. Upon completing the program, fellows are prepared to assume a role as a subspecialty consultant in genitourinary pathology in an academic or private practice setting. The program is approved as a non-ACGME accredited fellowship by the Graduate Medical Education committee. The Division of Genitourinary Pathology handles all adult genitourinary clinical material from the IU Health system in Indianapolis (including IU Health University Hospital, IU Health Methodist Hospital, IU Health North and IU Health West hospitals). This provides a high volume of material that covers the full breadth of neoplastic and non-neoplastic disease. Two major components to the genitourinary pathology service are the daily in-house surgical pathology cases and the outside case/consultation service.
Clinical Training and ResponsibilitiesThe clinical responsibilities the fellows assume during the year of training include:
- Review of daily in-house GU biopsy and resection cases
- Review of outside case/consultation service
- Referrals for treatment at partner facilities
- Department faculty personal consultation
- Conference presentation at monthly multidisciplinary GU Oncology conference
Fellows are encouraged to participate in one or more research projects related to genitourinary pathology or quality improvement-related projects, submit and present the abstracts to local and national scientific meetings, and publish the data in peer-reviewed pathology/biomedical journals.
- Resident teaching
- Gross room supervision of residents and pathology assistants
- Additional opportunities for medical student teaching and building of digital archives
We offer three one-year fellowship positions per year all with a start date of July 1.
