 Course Objective


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.


The objective of this fellowship is to offer a period of intensive, specialized experience in the immuno-morphological approach to histopathological diagnosis and also an optimal way to achieve research expertise in the field of histopathology, especially at the level needed for an academic career. Hence, objective of this fellowship will be to train the fellows in:
a. various morphological variations (spectrum) of different disease entity.
b. the approach to a diagnosis.
c. various special stains and their interpretations.
d. the interpretation and pit fall of Immunohistochemistry.
e. the evaluation frozen sections
f. Under standing of bio statistics
g. Molecular pathology
h. Research methodology and project writing.
i. Teaching methodology and competency based teaching
j. Role of Artificial Intelligence in pathology


A hands-on training backed up by lectures, Seminars and group discussions will be the mode of above components of training. A tentative weekly schedule is shown below.

  • Hands on training on various techniques and grossing will be on routine basis.
  • Each fellow will have to complete a project and publish at least one paper in Pub Med as a part of research development.

List Opportunities for out-going students

The fellows will become proficient in histological diagnosis and its interpretation. They will also be able to teach others in the same. Thus, they can either open their own laboratory or join a medical collage / Corporate hospital. Many corporate hospitals prefer histopathologist who are well trained and have done fellowship from a good institution.
