Hematopathology Fellowship Program

Description

The program is designed to give a broad experience in diagnostic hematology and in laboratory hematology. The fellow in hematopathology will gain experience and expertise in the processing and interpretation of peripheral blood smears, bone marrow aspirates and biopsies and lymph nodes. Since hematopathology is primarily a subspecialty, based in the laboratory, exposure to a variety of modern diagnostic techniques and the operation of a laboratory is required. This includes familiarity with a full range of standard coagulation measures, immunopathology, hemoglobin analysis, molecular biology, special histochemistry, cytogenetics, hematology instrumentation, quality control and laboratory management. Training in this program will encompass studies relevant to hematopathology with flow cytometry, electron microscopy and surface marker techniques. The fellow will be encouraged to develop research projects in one or more areas of interest to him/her.
