The department of Pathology at Pennsylvania Hospital, Philadelphia (a component of Pennsylvania Health System) offers 1- year fellowship in general surgical pathology. The responsibilities of fellows include supervised signout of a comprehensive range of both neoplastic and non-neoplastic surgical specimens and responsibility for frozen section diagnosis. Fellows participate in all aspects of surgical pathology, with increased responsibility for independent decision making and diagnosis.

The rotations are primarily at the Pennsylvania Hospital. Fellows also are offered elective rotations in various subspecialty services at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. Development of a clinical / translational research project during the fellowship year is strongly encouraged.
Successful completion of the residency requirements for certification in Anatomic Pathology or combined AP/CP by the American Board of Pathology, and eligibility for Pennsylvania medical training license (Step 3 of USMLE is required).
