Hematopathology Fellowship

Hematopathology Fellowship ArtDescription
This one-year accredited program is designed to train up to two well-rounded academically oriented hematopathologists.  The fellowship will provide extensive training in all aspects of hematopathology including bone marrow pathology, lymph node pathology, blood smear pathology, body fluid pathology, immunohistochemistry, flow cytometry, automated hematology, hemoglobinopathies, coagulation, cytogenetics, and molecular pathology.  Approximately 2200 bone marrow biopsy specimens and 3000 flow cytometry specimens are evaluated each year in our hospital-based laboratory. 

Participation in conferences and teaching of pathology residents, medical students, and hematology-oncology fellows is required.  After a training period, the fellow is expected to assume graded sign-out responsibilities under supervision.  Fellows have the opportunity to participate in clinical and basic research, and are encouraged to design and complete a research project.  Strong interdepartmental programs exist in cancer prevention and control, epidemiology, and biostatistics.

Candidates must be Board eligible or certified in Clinical Pathology or Anatomic & Clinical Pathology and must have or be eligible for an unrestricted license to practice medicine in Kansas and Missouri. Preference will be given to candidates who have demonstrated an interest in pursuing an academic career in Clinical Pathology.

Commensurate with the level of training and experience.
