Neuropathology Fellowship

A two-year neuropathology fellowship program is available at IU School of Medicine and its main clinical-teaching facilities on the Indianapolis campus. These facilities provide a large volume of surgical and autopsy cases in neuropathology and ocular pathology. Planning and participation in departmental and interdepartmental conferences are a part of the program as is the instruction of residents and medical students. Diagnostic neuropathology is generally emphasized during the first year. Active participation in research projects is the main goal during the second year. Research opportunities in a variety of areas are numerous and include Alzheimer’s disease, prion diseases and brain tumors. Optional one month rotations are available in neurology, neurosurgery and neuroradiology.
