Hematopathology Fellowship Program

Hematopathology Fellowship 

Next Opening 2022-2023

The Department of Pathology offers 2 funded ACGME-accredited fellowship positions in hematopathology with emphasis on diagnostic hematopathology and laboratory hematology.  The program includes training in peripheral blood and bone marrow morphology/interpretation, lymph node pathology, laboratory hematology, coagulation, flow cytometric immunophenotyping, immunohistochemistry, cytogenetics, and molecular pathology.

The laboratory performs approximately 370,000 hematology tests per year and evaluates >2,000 in house bone marrows and lymph nodes, > 5,000 flow cytometry cases, > 2700 consultation cases, and > 2,000 peripheral blood and body fluid smears per year.  This volume allows for exceptional depth and breadth of experience.

Fellows serve as the initial consultants for all cases on their service and are an essential and integral component of patient care. While delivering excellent care is the primary focus of our department, as part of this process, we are dedicated to providing fellows with the foundational knowledge and experience to create skilled and adaptable diagnosticians, nurture their interests, and provide personalized opportunities to help them fulfill their career goals.  We seek candidates with a strong interest in hematopathology and who possess a growth mindset and dedication to patient care, lifelong learning, and teamwork.


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

Applications should be made by September 30th for fellowships beginning a year from the following July 1st.  Applications submitted after the September 30th deadline may be considered at the discretion of the program director however early applications are encouraged.
