Led by director Jonathan Melamed, MD, NYU Langone’s Department of Pathology offers a one-year post-residency fellowship position in uropathology. Our fellowship is not accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).
Uropathology fellows work with a high volume of interesting and challenging diagnostic material from NYU Langone’s Tisch Hospital, NYU Langone Hospital—Brooklyn, and a variety of ambulatory care referral centers. Our team has access to surgical material provided by a specialized urology service with an established uro-oncology division.
We encourage fellows to partner with clinical and basic science investigators to conduct translational research using resources available through tumor boards and our active research programs in prostate, bladder, and kidney cancer. In addition, the Prostate Cancer Biorepository Network and well-developed scientific cores and shared resources provide suitable environments for translational research.
Our goal is for uropathology fellows to apply the clinical knowledge gained from participating in hands-on diagnosis and research to become proficient diagnosticians and productive scholars.
