RESEARCH-TRACK FELLOWSHIP Recruitment Period Open April 16th, 2019 through Sunday, Jun 30, 2019 at 11:59pm (Pacific Time) Description

UCI School of Medicine
Department of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine


The Department of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine at UC Irvine offers a RESEARCH-TRACK FELLOWSHIP that provides focused research experience and training after successful completion of ACGME-accredited residency training in Anatomic Pathology (AP) and/or Clinical Pathology (CP). This fellowship is associated with an Instructor-level appointment in the UCI School of Medicine. This fellowship is in accordance with the American Board of Pathology’s (ABP) Physician-Scientist Research Pathway (PSRP), which allows trainees to use up to six months of research under appropriate research mentorship towards ABP eligibility. Upon completion of clinical training, PSRP trainees become postdoctoral research fellows with at least one year of guaranteed financial support, and may work with any appropriate research mentor at UCI. Clinical privileges in AP and/or CP are possible, but not required.

Candidate must have a DO, MD, or MD-PhD degree with a substantial and demonstrated track record in research, and completed the clinical portions of CP-only, AP-only, or AP/CP residency training. For fellows interested in clinical privileges, candidates must possess a California medical license.

The UCI Medical Center in Orange is the principal clinical and clinical training facility of UCI Health and the School of Medicine. For 14 consecutive years, the medical center has been rated among the nation's best hospitals by U.S. News & World Report. The UCI main campus in Irvine is a top-10 public university based on U.S. News & World Report and is home to several outstanding research departments and NIH-funded centers, including the Chao Family Comprehensive Cancer Center (CFCCC), Institute for Clinical and Translational Sciences (ICTS), Center for Complex Biological Systems (CCBS), Alzheimer Disease Research Center (ADRC), Institute for Memory Impairments and Neurologic Disorders (MIND), and Sue and Bill Gross Stem Cell Research Center (SCRC). Graduate training programs include those for clinician-scientists (Medical Scientist Training Program) and for basic and applied scientists in the biomedical sciences, biological sciences, neurosciences, systems biology, physical sciences, and engineering, among others.

Orange County offers year round warm weather, cultural diversity and proximity to many attractions.

Salary will be comparable to that of UCI residents with equivalent years of postdoctoral training.
