This ACGME accredited fellowship provides subspecialty training in hematopathology to academically oriented pathologists. An experienced faculty and affiliation with a major university medical school provide trainees with exposure to the complexities and richness of a full service referral and research institution. In addition, large bone marrow transplantation and hematology programs and a major clinical cancer center provide opportunities and challenges to develop a solid foundation in the fundamentals and practice of hematopathology. The fellowship offers intensive experience in:
- morphologic evaluation of lymphoid tissues, bone marrow biopsies, and bone marrow aspirates
- cell surface antigen analysis of lymphomas and leukemia’s by flow cytometry and immunohistochemical techniques
- interpretation of molecular diagnostic data
- cytogenetics, including FISH
- analysis of problems in coagulation medicine
Each fellow participates in a related research project. Fellows are accepted for a minimum of one year and a second year of training is offered and encouraged.
