Pathology Fellowships Gastrointestinal & Hepatic Pathology Fellowship

Gastrointestinal & Hepatic Pathology Fellowship

Led by director Wenqing Cao, MD, NYU Langone’s Department of Pathology offers a 44-week post-residency fellowship in gastrointestinal and hepatic pathology. This fellowship is not accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).

Our subspecialty service handles more than 35,000 gastrointestinal cases, 1,100 liver cases, and 200 pancreas cases per year. The fellowship program includes education and training in diagnostic gastrointestinal and hepatic pathology, and emphasizes the characterization of non-neoplastic and neoplastic gastrointestinal, liver, and pancreas diseases, as well as liver transplant pathology.

Gastrointestinal and hepatic pathology fellows are trained in the macroscopic and microscopic evaluation of gastrointestinal and hepatobiliary diseases, medical liver and transplant cases, and consultations. Our fellows also learn gross examination, frozen section interpretation, histopathologic diagnosis, and molecular pathology relevant to prognosis, prognostication, and therapeutic treatment of diseases of the gastrointestinal tract and liver.

Fellows attend and present cases at intradepartmental conferences, such as our weekly multidisciplinary GI and hepatobiliary oncology conference, IBD conference, pancreatic tumor board, and medical liver and liver transplant pathology conference. They also participate in didactic presentations to pathology residents and are assigned to assist with unknown cases.

Fellows have independent and collaborative research opportunities sponsored by the department.
