Cytopathology Fellowship


During this post-residency ACGME-accredited 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 nongynecologic specimens. Performance of superficial fine needle aspirations and on-site assessment of superficial and image 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. Goals of the program include preparation for the American Board of Pathology Added Qualification in Cytopathology exam, and an academic career, although fellows will find themselves superbly trained for a community practice in Cytopathology.

Hansen Lam, M.D.

Hansen Lam

Hansen grew up in upstate New York, where he spent most of his time playing soccer and helping out at his small family-owned restaurant. He went on to attend college at Cornell University where he studied Nutritional Sciences and computer programming, and has many fond memories exploring the beautiful gorges of Ithaca, New York. After college, he served as a corps member with Americorps, through the City Year program, where he taught Math and Language Arts in understaffed elementary schools. In medical school, he was introduced to Cytopathology through one of his course directors who was a practicing pathologist and became inspired by seeing how much value could be derived from such limited patient samples. Throughout his pathology residency at Mount Sinai Hospital, Hansen developed an interest in the intersection of anatomic and clinical pathology, and joined a research team studying the value that molecular testing of fine needle aspirate supernatant can bring to Cytopathology and patient care. Hansen enjoys learning new programming languages, playing soccer, and most of all, unbuckling after a long day of skiing for apr├Ęs-ski festivities with his friends.
