The Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at UCLA Center for the Health Sciences offers subspecialty training in clinical and experimental Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Pathology. UCLA is a leading center of clinical practice and research in cardiac and pulmonary transplantation, congenital heart disease, and atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease, and is a center of excellence in lung cancer and interstitial lung diseases. The fellow will participate in the diagnostic pathology related to these programs, and other scholarly activities including teaching and research. The fellow will have the option of participating in both (cardiovascular/pulmonary) subspecialty services during the training period.
All fellows also spend one rotation as a frozen section/gross room supervisor at The Ronald Regan UCLA Medical Center and complete a one-month general surgical pathology rotation at Santa Monica UCLA Medical Center.
Fellows will have the opportunity to independently sign-out clinical cases and perform intraoperative/frozen section consultations. There will be a proctoring process in place to determine the fellow’s readiness to have these clinical privileges.
