The Division of Cytopathology

Fellowship Program

During this post-residency one year fellowship program, the fellow will gain advanced experience in diagnosis, teaching, and research in clinical cytopathology. Diagnostic material consists of a wide variety of gynecologic and non-gynecologic specimens. Performance of superficial fine needle aspirations and on-site assessment of guided deep aspirates provides the trainee with extensive expertise in this popular technique. Fellows are given increasing responsibility in cytopathology sign-out as they acquire experience, and participate as instructors in an internationally acclaimed continuing medical education program. Research opportunities in immunocytochemistry, morphometry and applied molecular pathology are available. The second year provides advanced experience in diagnostic cytopathology and research and is tailored according to the trainee's interests and career paths. Goals of the program include preparation for a career in academic cytopathology and preparation for the American Board of Pathology Added Qualification in Cytopathology exam, although fellows will find themselves superbly trained for a community practice in Cytopathology.
