The Gastrointestinal and Liver Pathology Fellowship offered by the University of Florida Department of Pathology, Immunology and Laboratory Medicine is a comprehensive one- or two-year program that begins on July 1 annually.
The Fellowship provides the opportunity for advanced training and experience in GI/liver pathology practice and investigative pathology research. Boasting a fellowship faculty that comprises five Board-certified pathologists, the goal of this program is to train academic pathologists with GI/liver expertise.
Fellows will sign-out cases; teach medical students and residents; participate in clinical conferences; and perform various scholarly activities. With strong liver research and clinical programs, including liver transplantation, molecular biology, immunohistochemistry, electron microscopy and cytometry, the Program can be tailored to fellows’ individual interests to include GI/liver-related research. Lecture series, comprehensive instructional conferences and digital data and record retrieval are available for fellows enrolled in the Program.
