The Training Programme in Histopathology is not complete in most of the places due to lack of morphological teaching, facility for frozen section and Immunohistochemistry. Fellowship training imparts not only expertise beyond that which is attainable during residency, but also a unique opportunity for professional maturation. This also will be an excellent way to obtain in-depth exposure to subspecialty diagnostic pathology. Junior residency also lacks the professional development and trainee preparation for the marketplace.
In most of the centers the students learn morphology from different books as a result they gather more theoretical knowledge than a practical approach to histopathological diagnosis. Hence, most of the pathologists particularly young pathologists are scared of reporting histopathology or make mistakes. Our department has enough experience and expertise in morphology as well as immunohistochemistry to train the pathologist. An effort has been made to customize the training to meet the educational goals of any individual fellow.
This Fellowships will be beneficial to both the fellow and the department. For the fellow, the program provides reduced cost for an educational opportunity, advancement in their field, the change to make an impact, a boost to their resume, important networking opportunities and more. And for the department, the benefits are also plentiful, including a way to recruit talent, advance the need of the department, foster innovation in the department and to boost research.
Such program will help in capacity building in a difficult subject like histopathology which will be a great contribution to the nation.
