Gastrointestinal Pathology Fellowship

Miraca Life Sciences offered fellowship training in gastrointestinal (GI) pathology at our Irving (Dallas) laboratory. Inform Diagnostics currently is not accepting applications.

Inform Diagnostics interprets GI biopsies from more than 400,000 patients each year, providing unparalleled exposure to the full spectrum of GI pathology. In this unique setting, fellows gain progressive expertise in the analysis and reporting of GI biopsy material. Rotations at affiliated institutions complement this year of training by providing exposure to additional types of GI specimens, including resection specimens from the GI tract, pancreas, and liver, including liver transplant pathology.

Attendance and participation in Inform Diagnostics' daily and monthly educational conferences, as well as didactic lectures and journal club, ensures exposure to numerous interesting and challenging cases. In addition, fellows are expected to teach and mentor rotating residents from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Department of Pathology.

Inform Diagnostics routinely has a strong presence at national gastroenterology and pathology meetings featuring its investigative research activities; therefore, it is expected that fellows will participate in at least one research project during the fellowship year.

GI fellowship positions for the academic year 2016-17 have been filled.
