Openings for 2015-16 and 2016-17

Description: The Breast Pathology Fellowship at the University of Rochester Medical Center is a one year program that provides a thorough exposure to diagnostic surgical pathology of the breast as well as multidisciplinary management of breast disease. The main objective of the program is to provide the fellow with proficient diagnostic skills, in-depth understanding of the implications of pathologic diagnoses in the management of breast cancer patients, and a unique translational research experience. The fellow will conduct intraoperative gross examinations of breast specimens, sign out both in-house breast cases and consultation cases from outside clinics and hospitals, and discuss the cases at the weekly Multidisciplinary Breast Care Clinic Conference. The fellow will also have the opportunity to conduct clinical and/or translational research projects which will be tailored to meet the individual's interests. The breast pathology subspecialty is comprised of 5 breast pathologists under the leadership of Dr. David Hicks, an internationally recognized breast pathologist. Our subspecialty is committed to providing outstanding diagnostic services for excellent patient care and preparing the next generation of pathologists to be experts in the challenging field of breast pathology.

Requirements: Applicants must be board certified or eligible in Anatomic Pathology or Anatomic and Clinical Pathology and be eligible for a license to practice medicine in New York State.

Number of appointments: One position is available each academic year.

Responsibilities: The goal of the breast pathology fellowship program is to provide in depth clinical, research and teaching experience in the field of breast pathology so that at the end of the year, the fellow has achieved expertise in the field and is prepared to practice independently in either an academic or community hospital setting. This goal will be accomplished by offering a well-structured curriculum with responsibilities for trainees as follows:

1) Review and signout of breast cases: The fellow will be responsible for reviewing and dictating the breast cases (including consults and referrals from outside institutions) and signing out those cases with an attending breast pathologist on a daily basis. This includes those breast cases which are not handled by the daily resident assigned to biopsy/gross signout.

2) Intraoperative gross consultations: The fellow will participate in the evaluation of all breast surgical specimens submitted for intraoperative gross assessment under the supervision of an attending breast pathologist.

3) Reporting of biomarkers: The fellow will gradually develop expertise in interpreting and scoring the IHC results of estrogen and progesterone receptors and HER-2/neu overexpression by reviewing the IHC slides independently and signing out with the attending breast pathologist daily. He/she will also be trained in interpreting FISH results for HER-2/neu gene amplification.

4) Teach and supervise residents: The fellow will have an active role in teaching and supervising residents in the grossing room and will assist them in formulating gross and microscopic diagnoses when needed. He/she will prepare and give didactic lectures and unknown slide conferences for house staff and medical students when needed.

5) Multidisciplinary rotations: The fellow will have one week rotations in breast imaging, breast surgery, medical oncology and radiation oncology at the Comprehensive Breast Care Center at our Wilmot Cancer Institute. This will give him/her an insight into the significant role of the integrated multidisciplinary approach in treating breast cancer and will provide him/her with a better understanding of the clinical and management implications of pathologic diagnoses.

6) Multidisciplinary case conferences: The fellow will present the pathology findings at the weekly multidisciplinary case management conference. This is an excellent opportunity to interact with clinical colleagues and strengthen interpersonal communication skills.

7) Elective rotation: The fellow will be given an opportunity to rotate in a second subspecialty of his/her choice within the department, if requested.

Research: The breast pathology subspecialty is active in clinical, translational and collaborative research focused at understanding the biology and behavior of various types of breast cancers and associated high-risk lesions. The fellow is expected to participate in at least one clinico-pathological or translational research project during the year. He/she will be encouraged to present his/her work at any major breast pathology meeting and/or the annual USCAP meeting.

Community: Rochester is a midsize city in western New York with miles of lakeshore, endless summer festivals and winter sports. Located in the Finger Lakes Region, Rochester offers its residents a variety of outdoor activities. As the home for the internationally known Eastman School of Music, Rochester is also an ideal place for music lovers.

Stipends: Commensurate with the level of training.

Application: Applications should be submitted before December 31 of the previous year and must include the curriculum vitae, personal statement, three letters of recommendation, and copies of USMLE scores.

Now accepting applications for positions for 2015-2016 and 2016-2017.

California, The Scripps Clinic-Hematopathology


The Scripps Clinic
Hematopathology Program

Applicants for 2016

Description:
The Scripps Clinic Hematopathology program provides a unique and comprehensive training experience in hematopathology in a stimulating and nurturing environment.

The philosophy of the program is to prepare fellows for tertiary care practice. The primary emphasis is the morphologic pathology of hematolymphoid disease, mirroring the ongoing primacy of skilled microscopy in precise and efficient diagnostic hematopathology. The interpretation of ancillary studies (immunostains, flow cytometry, FISH analysis, cytogenetics, and molecular studies) is a second major point of emphasis. The third focal point of the program is the pathologist-clinician relationship and the critical nature of information exchange, both verbal and written, in the management of patients with hematologic disease. The program educational philosophy is that optimal training is enabled by a high level of responsibility. As such, our fellows serve as the primary managers of the hematopathology service.

The unique practice setting of Scripps Clinic is an ideal environment for service-oriented hematopathology training. A blended academic and tertiary care private practice facility in an idyllic setting with a robust institutional fellowship GME program (including Hematology/Oncology) and high levels of personal responsibility for service management have proven advantageous as our graduates enter the hematopathology job market.

The program director is Dr. Robert Sharpe, and the assistant program director is Dr. Kelly Bethel.

Requirements:
Board-certified or Board-eligible in AP/CP or AP. California medical licensure required during fellowship.

Types and Numbers of Appointments:
Accredited for two one-year training spots. Usually accept one candidate per year.

Stipends:
Commensurate with postgraduate level of training.

Applications:
Application deadline is December 1, one and a half years prior to the anticipated July 1 start date.

New York, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center-Thoracic Pathology

Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center
Thoracic Pathology Fellowship Training Program

Opening for 2016

The Department of Pathology at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York, NY, offers a Thoracic Pathology Fellowship Training Program. A clinical year is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). A second optional research year focuses on the molecular biology of thoracic disease. All fellows should have completed training in anatomic pathology and be certified (or eligible for certification) by the American Board of Pathology.

Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center provides nationally and internationally recognized expertise in pathologic diagnosis of pulmonary, pleural and mediastinal diseases. In addition to four outstanding thoracic pathologists (Maureen F. Zakowski M.D., Andre L. Moreira, M.D., Natasha Rekhtman, M.D. and William D. Travis, M.D.), the in-house hospital-based Thoracic Disease Management Team (DMT) consists of a world-class group of Thoracic Surgeons, Oncologists, Radiologists, Radiation Therapists and Molecular Biologists. A high volume of quality in-house surgical and consultation pathology material provides a strong foundation for this training program.

Clinical Training Year

During the year of clinical training, the fellow will be responsible for running the personal consultation services of the thoracic pathologists in the Department of Pathology at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. This clinical service consists of second opinion consultations on difficult neoplastic and non-neoplastic pulmonary, pleural and mediastinal specimens. In addition, the fellow can observe and provide assistance to the oncologic surgical pathology fellows who are rotating on the thoracic in-house service. The personal consultations provide a broad spectrum of non-neoplastic as well as neoplastic material thus providing an excellent supplement to the hospital based thoracic material.

Many of the consultation cases and a substantial percentage of the in-house cases are complex and require ancillary techniques such as histochemical and/or immunohistochemical and molecular studies as well as clinical or radiologic correlation. In addition, there is frequent interaction with all four of the senior staff, with many educational discussions about diagnostic criteria, differential diagnoses, recent pertinent publications, and the limitations of existing classification systems. A study set of 1000 cases of pulmonary, mediastinal and pleural specimens including many rare entities is also available for study.

We also have weekly multidisciplinary conferences with Pulmonologists, Oncologists, Surgeons and Radiologists to discuss current cases. Chest CT images are reviewed for many consultation cases for radiologic pathologic correlation, especially for nonneoplastic lung diseases. These conferences allow for exposure to a dynamic integrated approach to the diagnosis of a variety of thoracic entities, including non-neoplastic lung disease. During the clinical year, the fellows are expected to complete at least one research project that should result in publication in the medical literature based on the large volume of outstanding archival and current clinical material for both neoplastic and non-neoplastic thoracic diseases. The fellow is also expected to give a presentation of this research at a departmental conference and submit an abstract to the United States and Canadian Academy of Pathology annual meeting.

Objectives:
1) To provide training in diagnostic thoracic pathology including both neoplastic and non-neoplastic disorders.
2) To understand problem areas in thoracic pathology that need to be solved by carefully designed research projects.
3) To learn how to design a research project, to execute the idea, collect and organize the data, analyze the data, formulate a conclusion and write a paper.
4) To learn how to manage an efficient, high-quality diagnostic pathology consultation service.
5) To learn how to interact with thoracic physicians in other disciplines to achieve the correct diagnosis in complex cases.

For application materials or questions regarding this fellowship, please email either Dr. William Travis or Ms Nicole Rinaldi, RinaldN@mskcc.org or call (212) 639-7102. Applications including curriculum vitae and three letters of reference should be sent to:
