Surgical Pathology In The Department of Pathology

Breast Pathology Fellowship

With the high level of complexity of breast pathology cases and the evolving role of the pathologist as a “diagnostic oncologist,” breast pathology has become a highly desirable area for pathologists to have specialty expertise.  At Stanford we offer a dedicated Breast Pathology Fellowship that will provide in depth training in breast pathology with the goal of becoming a specialist in the field.  The Stanford Breast Pathology Service is rich with both routine breast pathology (including ancillary studies like HER2 FISH testing) and advanced consultative material to learn from.  The breast pathology fellow will also have opportunities for learning in a multidisciplinary setting from leaders in the field of breast oncology, surgery, imaging and radiation oncology.  Graduated responsibility opportunities include a Junior Attending rotation, presenting at breast tumor boards, teaching opportunities, and service as a point person and consultant on breast pathology related issues.  Elective and research time can be used to pursue additional subspecialty training in other areas (such as molecular pathology) or to work on research projects. Departmental resources and support are available for clinicopathologic and translational research projects.  
We can accept up to two breast pathology fellows per year.

The Breast Pathology Fellows will spend their year on the following rotations:

We have filled our two 2018-2019 breast fellowship positions. Applications for 2019-2020 will be reviewed in the fall of 2017.
