About Surgical Pathology Fellowship

The Department of Pathology at the University of Utah School of Medicine offers a one-year fellowship program in surgical pathology. This fellowship is designed to give the fellow experience at the junior faculty level, including sign-out of surgical pathology cases. The fellowship is based at the Huntsman Cancer Hospital at the University of Utah. Training in general surgical pathology is emphasized. We have a great variety of interesting and challenging cases on a daily basis, including breast, gynecologic, gastrointestinal, genitourinary, pulmonary, head and neck, skin, and soft tissue/bone pathology. Electives are available in cytopathology, hematopathology, neuropathology, gastrointestinal, renal pathology, and dermatopathology. Research activities are available and encouraged. The fellows will be expected to teach surgical pathology residents and medical students.

The overall goal of the fellowship is to provide comprehensive, broad-based training in surgical pathology.


Applicants must hold an M.D. degree (or foreign equivalent with ECFMG certification), be board eligible or board certified in anatomic or anatomic/clinical pathology, and be eligible for a Utah State medical license.

J-1 Visa

The J-1 visa is the required visa for international trainees. This policy is governed by the University of Utah Office of Graduate Medical Education and applies to all Department of Pathology fellowships, regardless of program accreditation or associated degree type.
