One of the many opportunities available to students in the College of Medicine is the post-sophomore Fellowship in Pathology.
Up to two students per year may apply to participate as a fellow in the Department of Pathology at Upstate Medical University. Fellows work alongside residents and faculty, rotating through the divisions of the department, including surgical pathology, clinical pathology, the blood bank, etc.
The fellowship provides in-depth training in diagnostic laboratory testing and therapeutic interventions that significantly enhance one's understanding of tests used in the clinical setting. Students re-entering clerkships after this fellowship will have an excellent basis for understanding what tests to order, when to order them, and the limitations of testing.
In addition to providing an excellent bridge between basic science and clinical education, the fellowship offers participants a way to distinguish themselves as they continue on in training, both in medical school and residency.
PSF currently is not recruiting.
Anna Nichols, Class of 2012
‘Striking a Balance’ in the MD/PhD Program
With two years of medical school and a doctorate from Upstate already on her resume, MD/PhD student Anna Nichols (pictured above) has transitioned to the final two clinical years of the program. Nichols will earn a dual MD/PhD degree, and start on a career that she hopes will “strike a balance” between research and clinical practice.
