Cardiopulmonary Pathology Fellowship
Led by director Andre L. Moreira, MD, PhD, NYU Langone’s Department of Pathology offers a 48-week post-residency fellowship position in cardiopulmonary pathology. This fellowship is not accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).
Cardiopulmonary pathology fellows are trained in diagnostic cardiothoracic pathology and gain an understanding of molecular pathology techniques. In addition, our pathologists provide extensive research training in cardiothoracic pathology.
The diagnostic cardiothoracic pathology curriculum includes training in macroscopic and microscopic evaluation of cardiothoracic specimens, including heart and lung transplant pathology. Fellows gain experience in gross examination, frozen section preparation and interpretation, histopathologic diagnosis, and molecular pathology relevant to diagnosis, prognostication, and personalized therapy for cardiothoracic diseases.
Our fellows attend and present cases at intradepartmental conferences, including a weekly multidisciplinary lung tumor board and a cardiothoracic transplant and interstitial lung disease conference. They also participate in didactic presentations to faculty and trainees in the Department of Pathology.
