Breast Pathology Fellowship

Aims Statement

Our Breast Pathology Program provides a comprehensive 1-year program to educate fellows to become excellent practitioners of all areas of breast pathology. We aim to produce excellent, highly competent breast pathologists with excellent clinical and research skills, who will be local and national leaders in the field of breast pathology. We also aim to provide ample research opportunities and exposure to a variety of settings. We also train our fellow to be able to practice breast pathology in a diverse patient population in a community or private practice setting.


Our ACGME-accredited Selective Pathology-Breast fellow is supervised by a team of five highly experienced breast pathologists with 10 to 20 years of experience in the field. This Breast Pathology subspecialty service covers two major hospitals, William P. Clements Jr. University Hospital (CUH) and Parkland Hospital (PHHS), which is a safety-net hospital that serves a different patient population. These two hospital systems provide a wealth of very interesting and challenging cases that cover the entire spectrum of breast diseases with a balanced distribution of benign and malignant diseases.
