One of Four Fellowships Available for 2020!
The goal of this one-year ACGME-accredited fellowship is to provide the diagnostic skills and in-depth knowledge of both pediatric and adult hematopathology. Fellows, with staff, are responsible for work-up and sign-out of bone marrow, lymph node, and other surgical pathology specimens with suspected lymphoproliferative disorders, including review of relevant hematologic data, peripheral smears, bone marrow aspirate smears, histologic sections, immunohistochemistry, flow cytometry, comprehensive molecular analysis of single targeted genes and gene panels, cytogenetics and FISH. Fellows are responsible for diagnostic evaluation and triage of fresh material sent to surgical pathology for frozen sections for possible lymphoproliferative disorders. Fellows also serve as the primary point of communication between Hematopathology and Hematology/Oncology, gaining hands-on experience in laboratory hematology and coagulation, including interpretation of laboratory studies and laboratory management.
Applicants must have completed pathology training in an AMA-approved pathology residency program in the United States or Canada and be Board Eligible by the start of the Hematopathology Fellowship. Combined AP/CP training is recommended, but highly qualified AP-only or CP-only applicants will also be considered. An interest in laboratory investigation and/or previous research experience is desirable.
Commensurate with level of training.
