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.
