This ACGME accredited fellowship provides subspecialty training in hematopathology for academically oriented pathologists. 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, a large bone marrow transplantation and hematology program, and a major clinical cancer center provide opportunities and challenges to develop a solid foundation in the fundamentals and practice of hematopathology. The laboratory evaluates approximately 1,200 bone marrows and 350 lymph nodes a year in addition to reviewing approximately 200 cases in consultation. 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.
