The Orthopaedic Pathology fellow will develop competency in all aspects of orthopedic pathology, including bone tumor pathology, non-neoplastic bone pathology and associated findings in laboratory medicine. Our in-house faculty consists of six board certified pathologists with postgraduate subspecialty training in orthopedic pathology and is by far the largest concentration of individuals with this expertise in a single institution in the world. We are affiliated with Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC), which has an additional three full time pathologists subspecializing in bone and soft tissue tumors. Graduates of our program practice specialty orthopaedic surgical pathology at academic medical centers across the US.

Curriculum and Expectations

The Orthopaedic Pathology fellow will gain experience in every aspect of the specialty, including specimen processing and review, radiographic correlation, and clinical correlation. To this end:

  • Each fellow will spend approximately nine months at HSS and three months at MSKCC. The fellowship offers ample research opportunities at both institutions.
  • The fellow is responsible for the workup and initial diagnoses of our busy consultation practices.
  • The fellowship includes many unique learning opportunities, such as access to a teaching collection of more than 10,000 glass slides along with their corresponding imaging studies, as well as mentoring in using and studying this collection.
  • Fellows are expected to author a peer-reviewed publication or present findings at a national or international meeting.
