Bone and Soft Tissue Pathology Fellowship

Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center
Application Due Date
Brief Description

The Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center offers a one-year fellowship training program in bone and soft tissue pathology. The fellowship begins on July 1st and ends on June 30th the following year. All fellows should have completed residency training in anatomic pathology and be certified (or eligible for certification) by the American Board of Pathology.

During the sub-specialty fellowship year, the fellow will have the opportunity to study our large volume of quality in-house and submitted material, departmental consultation case material, as well as recommended reading of literature to achieve adequate competence in the pathologic diagnosis, staging, and prognostication of a wide variety of bone and soft tissue tumors. In addition, the fellow will have the opportunity to perform clinico-pathologic and molecular correlations. The fellow will serve as a consultant to the oncologic pathology fellows in the orientation, gross dissection and morphologic evaluation of bone and soft tissue specimens. Fellows are integrated into a multidisciplinary team of experts in bone and soft tissue oncology, surgery, radiology and radiation oncology. We provide ample opportunities to engage in independent and collaborative clinicopathologic and translational research. During the process of attendance of daily sign out, the fellow would have had the opportunity to review approximately 3000 cases during the course of the fellowship year. Fellows have access to intradepartmental and institutional didactics across the breadth of the disciplines of pathology and oncology.
