Hematopathology Fellowship Training Program

The Hematopathology Division offers a one-year ACGME-accredited fellowship in Hematopathology, which is designed to provide eligibility for the American Board of Pathology sub-specialty examination in hematology. The fellowship provides comprehensive training in the diagnosis and classification of a wide range of hematologic diseases and the principles of molecular pathogenesis of hemato-lymphoid neoplasms. The specimen types are diverse, due to the great variety of hematologic conditions seen at this institution, and represent neoplastic and non-neoplastic diseases from adult and pediatric patients. Trainees learn to integrate morphologic features with immunophenotypic profiles and results of molecular genetic and cytogenetic analyses for appropriate diagnosis and classification of hematopoietic disorders. Exposure to all aspects of hematology, in addition to tissue-based diagnostic hematopathology, is provided by structured activities and rotations in different sections of the Clinical Pathology Division including routine and special hematology, coagulation, flow cytometry, molecular genetics, and cancer cytogenetics. Fellows interested in research can take advantage of the extensive opportunities for translational or more basic laboratory based investigations within the department or as collaborations with a host of laboratories conducting research in myeloid and lymphoid disorders throughout the medical center.
