Renal Pathology Fellowship

Aims Statement

Our Renal Pathology fellowship is designed primarily to attract trainees who are interested in establishing a practice in a large referral center hospital which has a large number of renal biopsies requiring a subspecialist in Renal Pathology. This program is centered round developing clinical competency in these areas, but there is a strong emphasis on academic activities with opportunities to publish a research paper if desired. This focus allows the trainee to seek employment in both academic and non-academic settings.


Our Renal Pathology fellowship is a one-year ACGME-accredited program with comprehensive training in native kidney pathology.

The fellow will receive in-depth exposure to all aspects of evaluation, including light, immunofluorescence, and electron microscopies. Adult and pediatric specimens are well represented. The fellow is given graduated responsibility for handling cases and will become proficient in interpreting immunofluorescence microscopy, electron microscopy, and all typical and immunohistochemical light microscopic stains used in renal pathology.

In addition, the fellow will participate in renal pathology and the education of residents and clinical fellows.
