The Spotlight Shines on Dr. Amy Zhou!



Dr. Amy Zhou is the Jonathan I. Epstein Fellow in the Department of Pathology at Johns Hopkins Hospital.

Born in the city of Wuhan, China, Dr. Zhou grew up in Belmont, Massachusetts with her twin sister. She graduated from Belmont High School and was named a Presidential Scholar in 2003. Dr. Zhou entered Harvard University where she majored in biological anthropology and earned a B.A. magna cum laude with highest departmental honors in 2007.

Amy obtained her M.D. degree in 2012 from the University of Massachusetts Medical School, and stayed at UMass as an AP/CP pathology resident. She also served as chief resident during her PGY4 year.

In 2016 Amy arrived at Johns Hopkins Hospital where she was the Yener Erozan Cytopathology Fellow.  She enjoyed her Cytopathology fellowship experience and working with Dr. Erozan, Dr. Ali, and the other faculty.   In 2017 she continued her training at Johns Hopkins as a GU pathology fellow working with Dr. Jonathan Epstein.  Amy’s recent research projects involve prostate cancer grading, urine cytopathology, and FISH.   “One of the best things about being a GU fellow is signing out with Dr. Epstein on a daily basis,” Amy notes. “He is one of the best teachers I’ve ever had!”

In pursuit of warmer weather and Mickey Mouse, Amy will be moving in Orlando, Florida to start a new job after fellowship.   Amy’s other interests include classical Chinese music and opera.
