The Department of Pathology at Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh is staffed by five board-certified Anatomic Pediatric Pathologists. In addition, extensive support from the Divisions of Neuropathology, Hematopathology, Transplant Pathology and others, allows for world-class expert support in specific areas. The interests of the staff cover all areas of pediatric diagnostic pathology, and a range of special procedures applicable to pediatric surgical pathology is offered. Special handling is necessary for some studies; therefore, it is advised to call ahead for specific requirements.
Residents from the Pathology Residency Program at the Department of Pathology, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, rotate for six weeks in our Division, gaining exposure to essential elements in the sub-specialty.
In addition, an ACGME-approved Fellowship Program in Pediatric Pathology, one of the oldest and most prestigious in the country, is offered. This is a one-year postgraduate course for trainees who have graduated from a general pathology residency, are Board eligible in AP or AP/CP, and wish to pursue a career in academic pediatric pathology.
This program is designed to give participants guided and supervised exposure to the practice of complex, hospital-based pediatric pathology in all its facets. With an emphasis in academic initiatives, there is broad exposure to the surgical and autopsy pathology of children, including developmental, fetal, placental and perinatal areas. Our trainees are mentored and encouraged to participate in academic and research projects, as well as to present their work at national and international meetings and publish it. They also participate in the teaching of rotating AP or AP/CP residents. At the end of their training, our Fellowship graduates are expected to have acquired enough expertise to function as independent practitioners in pediatric patient care. Managerial aspects in Pediatric Pathology are included in our training, covering quality improvement and compliance practices, which should help them in becoming leaders in the specialty.
