Students desiring a very special opportunity to gain clinical and research experience in pathology should consider applying for the Post-Sophomore Fellowship (PSF) open each academic year in the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine. One to two students will be selected and will have rotations and duties similar to first-year residents in pathology. This will provide the student a unique avenue to expand his or her current knowledge base through hands-on experience in a hospital setting. One-half year of basic science laboratory research with departmental faculty may be available for qualifying students.
Students work closely with attending faculty and resident pathologists in gross and microscopic diagnoses, intraoperative consultations (frozen sections) and clinical pathology consultations. Students will also prepare case material for presentation at departmental and subspecialty conferences and have the opportunity to participate in research projects. This 12 month fellowship commences on June 1 and runs through May of the subsequent year.
