The Pathologist announces launch of a one-of-a-kind fellowship program in collaboration with Loyola University Health System



New York, U.S., March 12, 2021 – The Pathologist and the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at Loyola University Health System today announced the launch of the Digital Communications Fellowship (DCF), an exciting new program designed to provide pathology trainees with tools to become expert communicators and establish themselves as leaders in the field.


Designed for pathology-aspiring medical students, pathology residents, and pathology fellows, the program’s first cohort will be limited to three fellows chosen by a panel of top pathology and lab professionals. The first six months of the fellowship will consist of online lessons taught by expert faculty, along with a number of interactive learning modules, and it will culminate with a capstone project in the final three months.


The DCF opens for registration today, March 12, 2021, with the curriculum beginning in July 2021. The first class will graduate in March 2022, coinciding with the annual meeting of the United States & Canadian Academy of Pathology (USCAP).


The DCF co-directors cite the growing importance of proficiency in a digital environment. “A carefully constructed digital persona is a crucial component of pathology leadership. The Digital Communications Fellowship in Pathology aims to provide fellows with the power to leverage digital platforms to succeed professionally and personally,” notes Kamran M. Mirza, M.D., Ph.D., Associate Professor and Vice Chair of Education in the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at Loyola University Health System.


Michael Schubert, Editor of The Pathologist, says, “The future is digital, and it is collaborative. The Digital Communications Fellowship equips aspiring and early-career pathologists and laboratory medicine professionals with the tools to help build that future.”

The DCF is just the latest initiative by The Pathologist to support aspiring and practising pathologists with their development. In January 2021, they launched The Pathologist Educator to address a key challenge for trainees and professionals: the time and effort needed to search for CPD/CME courses and other educational resources to keep professional certifications up to date. This newsletter, curated by experts in the field, provides resources to hone diagnostic skills and showcases best practices for training so that the search for educational resources does not interrupt the workdays of busy professionals.
