Hematopathology Fellowship


The pathology department offers a one-year ACGME-accredited fellowship in Hematopathology, designed to provide eligibility for the American Board of Pathology subspecialty examination in hematopathology. The fellowship provides comprehensive training in the diagnosis and classification of hematologic diseases and the principles of molecular pathogenesis of hematologic neoplasms. Due to the great variety of hematologic conditions seen at this institution, the specimen types are diverse 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 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 Clinical Pathology 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. The opportunity for an additional year of training dedicated to focused translational research is possible for interested and qualified candidates.
