Thank you for your interest in the Surgical Pathology Fellowship Program at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics.
A one-year program, in existence since 1986 with over 100 graduates, designed to provide an advanced, intense educational experience in Surgical Pathology. The program serves as a bridge to practice with graded responsibility and autonomy under the supervision of the Director of Surgical Pathology as well as the Surgical Pathology Faculty. At completion, the successful fellow should be able to demonstrate the knowledge, poise, maturity and communication skills to effectively function at the level of junior staff/faculty. The majority of applicants will have completed either an AP only or AP/CP accredited residency training program. In exceptional cases, fourth year residents may be considered. Selection is highly competitive and is based on performance during residency, faculty recommendation letters, and an interview.
