Hematopathology Fellowship

Research Activities

Clinical and diagnostic expertise is supplemented with continuing emphasis on the pathobiology underlying disease processes and the roles of new diagnostic tests incorporating advances in basic science.

Trainees are expected to undertake and complete at least one independent research project during the course of the fellowship. This project may take the form of “translational” research performed in collaboration with basic science and diagnostic faculty.

An intermediate goal is a presentation at a national meeting, ideally should lead to a publication in a peer-reviewed journal. Trainees are financially supported to attend any meeting at which they will be presenting a paper.

Fellows with prior training and interest are encouraged and supported to pursue bench research in the department or in collaboration with investigators in other departments. They are given two weeks each near the end of the academic year to work on completion of any projects undertaken during the year. In addition, there are frequently several hours during the day on some of the rotations when they have time to pursue a project.
