Gastrointestinal Pathology

Description: The GI Fellowship Program at Indiana University provides comprehensive training across the entire spectrum of gastrointestinal pathology. The department receives a diverse array of cases ranging from mucosal biopsies to complex resection specimens. A large pancreatic tumor program at IU Health supplies the department with 300-400 pancreatic resection specimens annually. Our transplant program is the largest in pancreatic and small intestinal transplantation; and sixth largest in liver transplantation in the United States, providing ample training in transplantation pathology. IU is a part of the NIH funded Clinical Research network for study of Non-alcoholic Steatohepatitis as well as the NIH funded Drug-Induced Liver Injury Network. In addition, there is a busy consult service in GI and liver pathology. The trainee will actively participate in all these aspects of GI pathology and develop the ability to handle a large and diverse case load in an efficient and accurate manner. Attendance at teaching conferences, including a daily consensus conference, is expected. Participation in one or more research projects is encouraged. Upon completing the program the fellow will be prepared to assume the role of a specialized gastrointestinal pathologist in either an academic or private practice setting.

Requirements: Applicants must have completed two years of accredited anatomic pathology training, and be eligible for a medical license in the state of Indiana.

Stipends: Stipends are commensurate with the year of postgraduate training in pathology.


Applications: Applications should include the CAP Standard Fellowship application, CV, personal statement and 3 letters of recommendation.  All documents should be submitted (preferably by email) by November 1st (1 ½ years prior to beginning of fellowship) to:
