The Division of Gastrointestinal and Liver Pathology at Weill Cornell provides comprehensive consultation services for patient care, research, and educational purposes. The Division annually processes nearly 15,000 biopsies of the gastrointestinal tract and liver, as well as surgical resections reflecting a wide spectrum of inflammatory and neoplastic diseases. Our subspecialty-trained gastrointestinal pathologists are widely sought for their expertise in the full range of digestive disorders, including Barrett's esophagus and colorectal cancer, as well as less common diseases of the liver, pancreas, and appendix.

There is a busy review and consult service of cases referred from outside institutions which expose the fellow to gastrointestinal pathology as practiced in the wider community. The fellow will develop the ability to handle a large and diverse case load in an efficient and accurate manner. Upon completing the program the fellow will be prepared to assume the role of a specialized gastrointestinal pathologist in either an academic or private practice setting. Attendance and presentation at GI consensus conferences, liver transplantation conference and multi-disciplinary tumor boards is required. Participation in one or more research projects and submission of at least one abstract/ completed manuscript for publication is required for successful completion of the fellowship.

This authoritative, concise reference book covers neoplasms of the entire gastrointestinal tract, liver, biliary system, and exocrine pancreas. Prepared by 113 authors from 17 countries, it provides an international standard for oncologists, gastroenterologists, and pathologists and will serve as an indispensable guide for use in the design of studies monitoring response to therapy and clinical outcome.

MedStar Georgetown University Hospital is part of the MedStar Georgetown Transplant Institute, one of the highest volume transplant programs in the United States. The hospital has performed more than 7,500 liver, kidney, small bowel, colon, stomach, and multi organ transplants. We also perform hepatobiliary surgery and offer auto islet cell transplantation for those patients suffering from the pain of chronic pancreatitis.

Ten pathologists provide general and subspecialty surgical pathology services including renal pathology and neuropathology. Subspecialty interests and expertise encompass breast, lung, head and neck, gynecologic, genitourinary, liver, gastrointestinal, and bone and soft tissue pathology.

The Selective Pathology GI fellowship is designed to serve as advanced training in the surgical pathology of the luminal gastrointestinal tract, liver, and pancreaticobiliary systems. The basis of this training lies in the receipt of approximately 23,000 cases per year which includes approximately 15,000 endoscopically obtained mucosal biopsy specimens, 700 medical liver biopsies and 200 transplant liver biopsies. Additionally, approximately 1000 GI pathology cases per annum are received from outside institutions for consultation. Due to the academic and tertiary care nature of the institution, many of these cases are challenging and unusual, and provide the GI fellow with a unique opportunity for concentrated experience in GI pathology. The GI pathology faculty includes 7 subspecialty trained attending pathologists, many of whom are nationally recognized for their contributions in their respective fields.

Gastrointestinal pathology at UAB is a section of Anatomic Pathology, providing comprehensive gastrointestinal, pancreatic, and hepatobiliary diagnostic pathologic service to UAB tertiary care Medical Center, including its Pancreatobiliary Disease Center, liver transplantation program, and O'Neill comprehensive cancer Center. It renders consultations on challenging cases from UAB pathology outreach services (CPPP), Children's of Alabama, Birmingham VA Medical Center and other local and regional institutions. Approximately 10,000 gastrointestinal and pancreatobiliary specimens (biopsies and resections) are processed each year, including approximately 1,000 liver biopsies/resections/transplants.

Fellows also participate in the development and implementation of quality improvement processes for our clinical laboratories and take an active role in intraoperative consultations. Additionally, fellows are responsible for multidisciplinary clinicopathologic conference and tumor board presentations at University of Miami/Jackson Health System facilities, where integration of clinical, radiographic and pathologic findings are discussed and management plans are determined. Additionally, the fellows have clinical rotations in gastrointestinal, liver and pancreas clinics. 041b061a72
