The Surgical Pathology Fellowship at Baylor University Medical Center, part of Baylor Scott & White Health, is fully accredited by the Texas Medical Board.
Our primary training facility's case volume is nearly 57,000 annually and represents a broad spectrum of pathology case types.
We accept one fellow each year.
The emphasis of the program is on progressive independence in case management. This includes gross examination, intraoperative consultation, microscopic diagnosis, as well as ancillary and molecular testing, resulting in a complete diagnostic report on complex cases.

We strongly encourage fellows to participate in a research project with abstract and presentation at a national meeting.
Fellows are on call for one week every six to eight weeks. Call primarily includes transplant donor biopsies.
Baylor University Medical Center, part of Baylor Scott & White Health, is a 115-acre campus
with 915 beds, a Level I trauma center and nationally ranked specialty services.
