Our Pediatric Pathology fellowship program in the Division of Pediatric Pathology, Department of Pathology, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine is one of the oldest in the country. It began informally in the 1950s, and through six decades of existence has trained many world-leading figures in our subspecialty.

The Department of Pathology has approximately 11,000 surgical pathology accessions and 1500 cytology specimens per year. This is in addition to placental and perinatal specimens accessioned at UPMC Magee Women’s Hospital, which is one of our core rotations. Pediatric and perinatal autopsies offer extensive opportunities to learn postmortem pathology covering the full spectrum of pediatric disease.

The program has a core staff of 10 faculty members fully dedicated to pediatric and perinatal pathology and research, in addition to subspecialty support rendered by members of other divisions in the Department of Pathology of the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. Our faculty covers the full spectrum of interests and expertise, including pediatric tumors, Neural Crest disorders (melanocytic nevi, Hirschsprung disease), cardiac and other congenital malformations, liver, lung, renal, gonadal, transplant, placental and developmental pathology, hematopathology, neuropathology, informatics and others.

We emphasize academic work by the fellows with mentoring and opportunities to present their work at national and international meetings.
