Pediatric Pathology Fellowship

Untitled document

Program: The pediatric pathology fellowship at SSM Cardinal Glennon Children’s Medical Center and Saint Louis University Department of Pathology provides the trainee with an opportunity to develop an understanding of diseases of infants and children. Pediatric autopsy and surgical pathology are stressed during the one-year fellowship and opportunities for subspecialty training in neonatal pathology, cytogenetics, clinical pathology, pediatric hematopathology, metabolic, skeletal muscle, CNS and renal disease are available. Learning resources include a large congenital heart museum, state-of-the-art electron microscopy, immunohistology and flow cytometry laboratories, facilities for morphometric and recombinant DNA analysis, as well as an active research division. Research opportunities are numerous both in anatomic and experimental pathology. The fellow acts as a liaison between the pathology department and clinicians and presents clinical pathologic correlations at neonatal, cardiology, gastrointestinal and pediatric surgical and autopsy pathology conferences.

Requirements: The candidate must have completed an accredited pathology residency in AP or AP/CP.  The candidate must be able to apply successfully for Missouri State medical licensure.

Types and Number of Appointments: One per year.
