Director's Message


Welcome to Pediatric Pathology and thank you for considering our Pediatric Pathology Fellowship!

Pediatric Pathology is a complex specialty spanning developmental, infectious, and neoplastic processes over a wide range of ages and stages of development. Texas Children's Hospital is the largest pediatric hospital in the nation and the Texas Children’s system consists of three hospitals (Texas Children’s Main Campus, Texas Children’s Pavilion for Women, and Texas Children’s West Campus). Our program examines materials from all three facilities, generating a large volume of routine, complex, transplant, and autopsy specimens.

We interact closely with our clinical and surgical colleagues via multidisciplinary conferences and glass slide case reviews sessions. As a result, graduates of our program are well trained in pathologic diagnosis and clinical/radiographic correlates and are valued staff pathologists in any practice setting.
