Cytopathology Fellowship

Cytopathology Fellowship

We offer a one-year Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education-approved comprehensive training program in diagnostic cytopathology emphasizing the interpretion of cytopathologic preparations. We are interested in Fellows who have completed at least three years of training through an accredited anatomic pathology residency program or four years of combined anatomic and clinical pathology training.

Fellows train on the cytology service, which evaluates approximately 50,000 cases per year. Of these cases, nearly 12,000 are nongynecologic specimens that include about 3,800 fine needle aspirations. The service performs approximately 500 pathologist-performed fine needle aspirations, most under ultrasound guidance.

We are involved in translational research concentrating on the application of new antibodies to clinical diagnostic dilemmas by immunohistochemical and immunocytochemical studies. We are also participating in an ongoing large clinical study with the Adolescent Health Service correlating cervical ThinPreps, anal Thinpreps, and HPV testing. We encourage fellows to participate in and complete a research project during the program.
