Gynecologic (GYN) Pathology Fellowship
Our Gynecologic Pathology Fellowship Program aims to educate fellows to become excellent practitioners of all areas of gynecologic pathology. We aim to teach diagnostic skills in all areas of gynecology, along with training the fellow with expertise in medical knowledge, communication skills, patient care, and professionalism. We aim to produce excellent, highly competent pathologists with adequate research skills, who will be local and national leaders in the field of gynecologic pathology and women’s health.
The ACGME-accredited Gynecologic (GYN) Pathology Fellowship program offered by the Department of Pathology at UT Southwestern Medical Center is a one-year fellowship with comprehensive training focusing on diagnostic gynecologic pathology that includes in-depth exposure to all aspects of the specialty. The fellow will also have ample opportunity to do clinical oriented research in the training period.
The Gynecologic Pathology Service includes the full range of gynecologic tumors, non-neoplastic diseases, and obstetrical lesions, with special emphasis on complex gynecologic oncologic cases. The fellow is given graduated responsibility for handling cases.
The fellow is expected to participate in independent and collaborative research, including the initiation and completion of at least one research project during the course of the fellowship period.

The Gynecologic Pathology Fellowship Program is structured to provide all needed core training over a one-year period and to ensure proficiency in practice in lesions of the female reproductive organs (gross pathology, frozen section diagnosis, histology, immunohistochemistry, and certain aspects of molecular diagnostics).
The clinical responsibilities the fellow assumes during the year of training include:
- Opportunity for sign-out of in-house Gynecologic Pathology cases with appropriate faculty supervision
- Review of all gynecologic consult cases
- Grossing of selected gynecologic oncology specimens
- Presentation and participation in Gyn Consensus Conferences and Gyn Tumor Board
- Participation in Gynecologic Pathologic intraoperative consultation
- Participation in research project(s)
The fellow is expected to participate in one or more research projects related to gynecologic pathology, to submit and present the abstracts to national scientific meetings, and to publish the data in peer-reviewed pathology/biomedical journals.
Prospective candidates must have completed an ACGME-accredited residency in anatomic pathology, must be board eligible or board certified in anatomic or anatomic and clinical pathology by the American Board of Pathology, and must be eligible for a training medical license to practice in Texas by the beginning of the Gynecologic Pathology Fellowship Program.
