Gastrointestinal and Liver Pathology Fellowship

The Gastrointestinal and Liver Pathology Fellowship program at IU School of Medicine provides comprehensive training across the entire spectrum of gastrointestinal, hepatic and pancreatobiliary pathology. The Department of Pathology receives a diverse array of cases ranging from mucosal biopsies to complex resection specimens. A large pancreatic tumor program at IU Health supplies the department with 300-400 pancreatic resection specimens annually. The transplant program at IU Health is the fourth largest in pancreatic and small intestinal transplantation and ninth largest in liver transplantation in the United States, providing ample training in transplantation pathology. IU School of Medicine is a part of the NIH-funded clinical research network for the study of non-alcoholic steatohepatitis as well as the NIH-funded Drug-Induced Liver Injury Network. In addition, a busy consult service in GI and liver pathology is housed at IU Health in Indianapolis.

Fellows in this program actively participate in all these aspects of GI pathology and develop the ability to handle a large and diverse case load in an efficient and accurate manner. Attendance at teaching conferences and tumor boards is expected. Participation in one or more research projects is encouraged. Upon completing the program, fellows are prepared to assume the role of a specialized gastrointestinal and liver pathologist in either an academic or private practice setting.
