The Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University and Women and Infants Hospital offers a 12-month ACGME-accredited fellowship in developmental and pediatric pathology.

Dr. Don B.

The training is provided by 10 core faculty, including six full-time pathologists who are certified by the American Board of Pathology with sub-specialty in pediatric pathology.
