Cytopathology Fellowship

Cytopathology Fellowship

An academic institution with a robust cytology service, the University of Rochester Cytopathology Laboratory routinely sees a high volume of complex, unusual, and interesting cases - both in-house and via consultation. Rochester is located in western New York, bordering the beautiful Finger Lakes region. Within a day’s trip, you can visit Niagara Falls or Toronto, Ontario, Canada. In Rochester, you have all the amenities of living in a city, with the luxury of the countryside being just an hour away.

The Cytopathology Unit examines approximately 50,000 pap smears, many of which come from high risk individuals, and more than 13,000 non-GYN specimens, including approximately 3,500 fine needle aspirations (FNAs). Our aspiration specimens range from superficial sites, to deep sites collected through interventional radiology techniques. Our presence in various hospital suites for procedure assistance is beyond rapid on-site evaluation and includes a personalized interactive approach to the physicians performing the procedure to fulfill our need for an accurate and thorough diagnosis. The fellow also performs FNAs (by either palpation or ultrasound guidance) on patients seen within our clinic and within our hospital. The fellow sees a high volume and a wide range and variety of cytopathologic specimens.
