PIT Award

The Society for Hematopathology Pathologist-in-Training Award is given each year to a fellow, resident or medical student who presents an outstanding paper related to hematopathology at the annual USCAP meeting. The nominee must be in one of the categories mentioned above at the time the paper/abstract is submitted. Previous winners are not eligible. Papers are judged by a committee comprised of members of the Executive Committee of the Society, and scored for scientific approach, significance, and presentation. All nominees with posters must be at their posters during the official poster sessions so they can discuss their work with the judges in order to be eligible for the award. Each winner receives a $500.00 prize.

Current Education Committee Activities

 The Education Committee has been actively involved in the following projects:
(1) Fellow In-Service Hematopathology Examination (FISHE) and Resident In-Service Examination (RISE)

The Education Committee appointed two subcommittees that interact closely with the American Society of Clinical Pathologists (ASCP), FISHE and RISE Examination Committee. The three-member Core Hematology Test Subcommittee is responsible for test question writing and vetting, strategic planning and test preparation. The Examination Question Authors is composed of 15 volunteer members, who write or solicit test questions from colleagues. Question writing and selection for the next academic year are underway as per the ASCP guidelines.  For instruction to submit items for FISHE please see here.


(2) Pathologist Recertification Individualized Self-Assessment Examination (PRISE)

The Education Committee will appoint a PRISE Question Authors Subcommittee that interacts with the American Society of Clinical Pathologists (ASCP), PRISE Committee. PRISE is developed for practicing pathologists to help them meet ABP MOC Part II (Life-Long Learning and Self-Assessment) and Part III (Cognitive Examination) requirements, and for pathology residents as a subspecialty-based study tool. The PRISE Examination Question Author will be composed of 10 volunteer members, who will write 5 questions each year geared toward practicing pathologists. For instructions to submit items for PRISE please see here.

2011 UCLA workshop

As the fellowship recruitment season begins, the Education Committee strongly urges all Hematopathology Fellowship Training Programs to abide by the guidelines adopted by our society in March 2008 and further discussed in March 2012.

1.    Accept applications until December 1, of the preceding year.
2.    Interview candidates in the month of January of the calendar year.
3.    Offer positions anytime on or after February 1, of the calendar year.

These guidelines are an informal agreement among Hematopathology Fellowship Training Programs to standardize the recruiting process across all programs in the country. These timelines fall slightly earlier that those of the Association of Pathology Chairs (APC/PRODS), which recommends accepting applications until December 1 and letters of recommendation until January 1, interviewing in February and offering positions on or after March 1 of the year preceding the beginning of the fellowship.
