Forensic Pathology Fellowship
The Forensic Pathology Fellowship is a fully accredited one-year program offering four weeks of sub-specialized training, as well as access to an unmatched variety of cases and an expansion of skill sets that will prepare fellows to practice in any location or setting. A lecture series on postmortem computed tomography prepares the trainee for the future of Forensic Pathology. There are two competitive positions for each academic year. Interviews are typically conducted in late September/early October, two years in advance.
Applicants to the fellowship must meet the following requirements:
- Licensed to practice medicine or osteopathy in California by fellowship start date.
- Be a United States citizen or a permanent resident who has filed an intent to become a citizen.
- Have successfully completed an ACGME-accredited residency in anatomic pathology or anatomic and clinical pathology, or have completed the equivalent Canadian training, or be certified in Anatomic Pathology or Anatomic and Clinical Pathology by the American Board of Pathology.
- Pass a background check, fingerprint check, and pre-employment psychological and physical examinations.
Physicians who wish to apply to the program should send a letter of inquiry, a curriculum vitae, and a standardized College of American Pathologist fellowship application to Fellowship Program Director Dr. Odey C. Ukpo.
