    Our Pediatric Pathology fellowship program in the Division of Pediatric Pathology, Department of Pathology, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine is one of the oldest in the country. It began informally in the 1950s, and along six decades of existence has trained many of the world leading figures in our subspecialty. Our program is ACGME-approved to train qualified candidates to take the Pediatric Pathology board exam, sanctioned by the American Board of Pathology.

    Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC is one of the nation’s premier pediatric hospitals, consistently ranking in the top tier among Pediatric Hospitals in the United States by the US News and World Report. The Department of Pathology has approximately 12, 000 Surgical Pathology accessions and 2000 cytological specimens per year. This is in addition to placental and perinatal specimens accessioned at the Magee Womens Hospital of UPMC, which is part of our core rotations. Pediatric and perinatal autopsies offer extensive opportunities to learn postmortem pathology covering the full spectrum of pediatric disease. The Program has a core staff of 11 faculty members fully dedicated to Pediatric and Perinatal Pathology and Research, in addition to subspecialty support rendered by members of other divisions in the Department of Pathology of the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. Our Faculty covers the full spectrum of interests and expertise, including pediatric tumors, neural crest disorders (melanocytic nevi, Hirschsprung disease), cardiac and other congenital malformations, liver, lung, renal, gonadal, transplant, placental and developmental pathology, hematopathology, neuropathology, histiocytic lesions, informatics and others. Our fellows are fully exposed to all kinds of material, ranging from the routine examples of pediatric disease to cases of the highest complexity of modern medicine. We emphasize academic work by the fellows, with mentoring opportunities to present their work at national and international meetings. Our state-of-the-art facility opened in 2009, and it counts with 296 pediatric beds and over 13,006 admissions per year. The John G.

    Accepting applications for openings available July 1, 2014, and July 1, 2015.

    The program's mission is to enable pathologist-in-training to master Pediatric Pathology. The program is intended to provide an organized experience for qualified physicians seeking to acquire advanced competence in the diagnosis of childhood diseases. The duration of the program is one year with at least eight months rotation in pediatric anatomic pathology. It includes formal education in diagnostic pediatric pathology, and diagnostic, management and quality assessment issues germane to the pediatric laboratory environment.

    During the year of training, the fellow is expected by the accrediting and certifying bodies (The Residency Review Committee for Pathology and the American Board of Pathology) to participate in at least 40 autopsies, 50 intra-operative consultations and 2000 surgical specimens. The fellow will be required to and be involved in most of the procedures performed in the department. The program also requires the trainee to familiarize himself/herself with the various activities that take place in Laboratory Medicine sections. The trainee will be assigned rotations through cytogenetics, microbiology, virology, biochemistry, transfusion medicine, hematology, molecular pathology/biology, and placental pathology. Although rotations through these different sections are usually for a week, modifications in the rotation may be made depending on the fellow's interests. The trainee will be assuming increasing responsibilities as he/she progresses through the program, and shows evidence of well-deserved confidence.
