A two-year fellowship program is offered. Activities are centered at the Indiana University School of Medicine and its main teaching facilities (IU Heath University and IU Health Methodist Hospitals, and Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health). The medical center provides a large volume of surgical and autopsy cases in neuropathology and ocular pathology. Planning and participation in departmental and interdepartmental conferences are a part of the program, as is the instruction of residents and medical students. Diagnostic neuropathology is generally emphasized during the first year. Active participation in research projects is the main goal during the second year. Research opportunities in a variety of areas are numerous and include Alzheimer's disease, prion diseases and brain tumors. One month rotation in Neurology, Neurosurgery and Neuroradiology are optional.
Applicants must have completed two years of accredited anatomic pathology training. Applicants with board certification in clinical pathology or other specialties must have one year of accredited training in anatomical pathology.
