Pediatric Pathology Fellowships

Pediatric Pathology Fellowships

The Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at Nationwide Children’s Hospital, Columbus, Ohio, offers several fellowship training opportunities.

Training opportunities include: 

  • Pediatric Pathology Fellowship Training, ACGME Accredited. Our program combines a strong curriculum focused on pediatric surgical and autopsy pathology, a nurturing learning environment and flexibility regarding electives and research projects. Fellowship eligibility requirements include a minimum of 3 years Pathology Residency training at an ACGME-accredited program and a valid ECFMG certificate (if applicable).
  • Clinical Pediatric Pathology Fellowship Training, newly approved Non-ACGME Accredited. This Clinical Pediatric Pathology training program is a first of its kind, offering focused training including pediatric hematopathology, pediatric transfusion medicine, diagnostic immunology, clinical microbiology and clinical chemistry. Our Clinical Laboratories perform more than 3 million tests per year.
  • We also offer Non-ACGME Surgical and Clinical Pediatric Pathology Training for qualified, independently funded international scholars who meet sponsorship requirements set by Nationwide Children's and home country academic institutions (start date and duration of training are negotiable - off cycle recruitment will be considered).

What You Need to Know


Learning and research opportunities are greatly enhanced by our close association with the Center for Childhood Cancer and the Children’s Oncology Group Biopathology Center. Our department is also home for the archives of the Children’s Cancer Group and Intergroup Rhabdomyosarcoma Study.

Combined, these resources offer wide opportunities to join cutting edge NIH-funded research in both basic and clinical science.

Our Pediatric Pathology Fellowship Program has been accredited since 1953, making it perhaps the first training program in the field.

We also offer non-ACGME training in surgical and/or clinical pediatric pathology for qualified independently funded international scholars. Focused rotations are offered based on availability to trainees at various levels.


Our staff includes 21 full-time pathologists and doctoral staff, including five American Board of Pathology certified pediatric pathologists. We process more than 10,000 surgical pathology cases, 100 autopsies and close to 300 bone marrows per year.

Faculty subspecialties and areas of interest include Perinatal Pathology, Electron Microscopy, Pediatric Hematopathology, Neuropathology and Muscle Pathology, Pediatric GI Pathology, Cardiac Pathology, Informatics and non-gyn Cytology.

We have a full-service state of the art histology laboratory and digital imaging center within the department.
