This fellowship is a one to two-year program that specializes in diagnostic gynecologic pathology, breast pathology and gynecologic cytopathology, including dedicated time for research.  We aim to train well-rounded academic subspecialists in women's pathology by emphasizing the importance of diagnosis, teaching, and research in evidence-based management of women’s diseases. The program is one of fourteen in the country specializing in gynecologic pathology, and is the only one to offer combined training in all three disciplines of women’s pathology.  Based at Women & Infants Hospital of Rhode Island, resources available to our trainees include a case load of 18,000 surgical, 60,000 cytology, and 850 consultation accessions per year.  Active participation in daily consensus conference, weekly prospective multidisciplinary gynecologic and breast tumor boards, weekly Petite Rounds, Consultation Review Conference (including access to a consultation archival file spanning nearly 30 years),gynecologic oncologic pathology conferences, and breast radiology/pathology correlation conference further enhance training.  The Lauchlan fellow also participates in the teaching of pathology residents and medical students at the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University.
