Neuropathology Fellowship

Neuropathology Fellowship

An ACGME-accredited two year fellowship that provides extensive hands-on experience in clinical and experimental neuropathology, and when completed provides eligibility for American Board of Pathology certification in Neuropathology.

The very active clinical service includes a high volume of surgical and autopsy neuropathology, muscle and nerve pathology, and surgical and autopsy ophthalmic pathology. Extensive training in intraoperative, molecular, immunohistochemical, enzyme histochemical and ultrastructural diagnosis is provided. Fellows are also educated in the administrative and technical aspects of brain banking and lab management. Conferences, teaching groups and lectures provide numerous opportunities to teach medical students and residents in pathology, neurosurgery, neurology and ophthalmology. Basic and applied research in neuroscience is supported, and Duke abounds in opportunities to conduct research in this field.

Applicants must be board-certified or board-eligible in Anatomic Pathology.
