The program is designed to provide comprehensive training in diagnostic cytopathology including fine-needle aspiration biopsy with surgical pathology and clinical correlation. The fellow will be exposed to a wide spectrum of gynecological and non-gynecological materials including performance and interpretation of fine-needle aspiration biopsies. In addition to cytopathology responsibilities, the fellow will have an elective rotation and designated time to complete a research project. Rotation in the molecular diagnostic laboratory is high encouraged. The fellow will be responsible for weekly cytology conferences and will participate in Gynecological and Non-Gynecological Tumor Boards.
