There is an application process & you must be approved. Each year 1-3 residents do external rotations. To my knowledge, there is no opportunity to visit Vanderbilt as a visiting resident.

Famous Faculty: Agnes Fogo (one of the most famous renal pathologists in the world); Kay Washington (Odze text); David Page and Jean Simpson (breast pathology; recently fired by the instititution)

Do you feel you have:

Adequate preview time? In general, we don't start sign-out until we have previewed all cases

Adequate support staff (P.A.’s, secretarial, etc.)? This is improving, but we still have positions to fill.

Adequate AP Teaching?      

Adequate CP Teaching?

The Department of Pathology, Microbiology and Immunology at Vanderbilt University, Nashville, Tennessee, offers a one year fellowship in molecular genetic pathology beginning July 1, 2013. There is one fellow appointed per year. This comprehensive program provides training in all aspects of molecular genetic pathology including the diagnosis of inherited diseases, pharmacogenetics, hematologic and solid tumor malignancies and infectious agents, as well as medical genetics. The curriculum includes didactic courses offered through the Center for Human Genetic Research. In addition to developing skills required to direct a clinical molecular pathology laboratory, the fellow will be instrumental in test development and implementation and will conduct clinically-based research.

Collectively, the molecular diagnostics and molecular infectious disease (ID) laboratories perform over 100,000 billable tests annually. During rotations in these laboratories, the fellow will gain experience in a plethora of testing platforms and will actively participate in ongoing personalized medicine initiatives at the institution involving molecular profiling and predictive pharmacogenetics testing.

Vanderbilt University Medical Center and Vanderbilt Children's Hospital are experiencing expansion in many areas with a nationally recognized cancer center, multifaceted organ and stem cell transplant programs and expansion of educational programs, clinical and translational research and basic science programs. Located in the heart of Nashville, Tennessee, Vanderbilt University is one of the nation's leading research and teaching institutions with undergraduate medical program contiguous on the same campus. Nashville, the capital of Tennessee, is a growing cosmopolitan area with a population exceeding 1.5 million, diverse entertainment, excellent schools and ready access to outdoor activities.
