Surgical/Selective Pathology Fellowship

This one-year accredited program is designed to provide advanced training in all major aspects of diagnostic surgical pathology including: Breast, Head and Neck, Endocrine, Gynecologic, Gastrointestinal/Pancreatic, Liver, Thoracic, Genitourinary, Bone and Soft Tissue and Heart.

The program also offers elective concentrated training in chosen subspecialities to further the fellow’s interests and career goals. 

Approximately 41,000 in-house surgical specimens are evaluated each year. The University of Kansas has a National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center serving a complex patient population. 

Fellows have an in-depth experience with comprehensive case sign-outs, intra-operative/frozen section consultations and review of outside consultations. After a training period, fellows are expected to assume graded, sign-out responsibilities under supervision.

Fellows are also required to participate in interdepartmental multidisciplinary tumor conferences and teach pathology residents and medical students. Fellows have the opportunity to participate in clinical research and are encouraged to design and complete a research project.


Candidates must be Board eligible or certified in Anatomic Pathology or Anatomic and Clinical Pathology and must have or be eligible for an unrestricted license to practice medicine in Kansas.
