next opening 2021-2022

The Department of Pathology offers an ACGME-accredited fellowship in hematopathology with emphasis on diagnostic hematopathology and laboratory hematology.  The program is designed to train academically oriented physicians to be subspecialists in the area of hematopathology.  Programs include training in peripheral blood and bone marrow morphology/interpretation, lymph node pathology, laboratory hematology, coagulation, flow cytometric immunophenotyping, immunohistochemistry, cytogenetics, and molecular pathology. The fellow is the primary reviewer of cases submitted to the Hematology Laboratory and interacts closely with fellows and staff on the Hematology Service.  The laboratory performs approximately 370,000 hematology tests per year and evaluates more than 3,000 bone marrows and lymph nodes per year. In addition, specialty electives and opportunities for independent case sign-out privileges will be available.

Applicants must be Board-certified or eligible in anatomic and/or clinical pathology.

Support is commensurate with the candidate's level of training.
