Residents and Fellows
If you are currently a trainee enrolled in an ACGME-accredited residency or fellowship training program, you may be eligible to rotate in our department during your elective time. You may work with a particular faculty member or gain experience in an area that is not offered at your training institution.
Candidates for residency who are not in medical school and who are not currently enrolled in an ACGME-accredited residency or fellowship training program are not eligible for an observership.
All visiting trainees must currently be in an ACGME-accredited residency or fellowship training program and have approval from their program director to observe at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center (NYPH/CUMC) campus.
In order to observe in our department, you must first identify a faculty mentor willing to supervise you during your observership. Once you have done so, please contact the program coordinator for instructions on how to proceed with the required paperwork.
Observers are not involved in patient care, and will not be provided with an evaluation at the end of their observership.
Residents and fellows who are enrolled in ACGME-accredited programs may be eligible to participate in elective training at NYPH/CUMC campus, under the supervision of Pathology and Cell Biology faculty.
An in-rotation request should be submitted when a resident or fellow is applying for an elective during which they will be responsible for providing patient care and will require an evaluation at the end of the elective rotation. Please note that in-rotations require program affiliation agreements and are contingent upon departmental and GMEC approval, and as such, should be requested no less than 90 days prior to the proposed start date.
Once approval is granted you will be instructed on how to proceed with the necessary appointment paperwork.
