The Departments of Pathology and Urology offer a one-year fellowship in genitourinary surgical pathology with emphasis on diagnostic uropathology. This program has both strong clinical and research components. The fellow will act as the primary consultant for the genitourinary pathology service, which handles a wide variety of biopsies and resection specimens from a large, active urology service. The University of Michigan has a federally funded Specialized Program of Research Excellence (SPORE) in prostate cancer. The fellow is expected to pursue research projects in addition to ongoing clinical and teaching activities. There are many opportunities for basic and applied research through close collaboration with the Urology Division of the Surgery Department, the Comprehensive Cancer Center and Michigan Center for Translational Pathology at the University of Michigan Hospitals.
Major program objectives are to provide fellows with sufficient background to pursue academic careers in genitourinary pathology and to expose them to the interdisciplinary care of patients suffering from genitourinary disease.
