Hematopathology Fellowship


This is a one-year ACGME-accredited fellowship that emphasizes diagnostic aspects of hematopathology. Candidates must be Board eligible or certified in either anatomic pathology or anatomic and clinical pathology; combined training is preferred. The fellow is trained in morphologic examination of blood, bone marrow, and lymph nodes, and particular emphasis is given to use of ancillary techniques.

The fellow has direct responsibility for flow cytometry and immunocytochemistry, and gains experience in cytogenetics and molecular pathology. In addition, the program includes exposure to coagulation and other aspects of laboratory hematology.

The fellow interacts directly with the clinical staff in both adult and pediatric hematology and oncology and with physicians outside the Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions who submit material for consultation. There is significant flexibility for tailoring the fellowship to individual interests. Participation in research is encouraged and the potential exists for pursuing research in greater depth by extending the fellowship beyond a single year.


To apply, please download our application form and submit it by email to the program director. Please include three letters of recommendation (a fourth letter will be required later for those who are accepted). Foreign medical graduates should also include ECFMG documents and statement of visa status.

The application submission period is June 1- September 1.
