Hematopathology Fellowship

hemopathologyThe Department of Pathology at the University of Utah School of Medicine offers an ACGME-accredited one- or two-year fellowship program in hematopathology. This fellowship is designed to meet the needs of the successful candidate and offers broad experience in both diagnostic and experimental hematopathology.

Liquid hematology, bone marrow aspirate and biopsy examination, lymph node pathology, immunohistochemistry, flow cytometry, and molecular pathology are all emphasized during the fellowship training. Through an active consultation service, an affiliated national reference laboratory, and study cases from Children’s Cancer Group and Southwestern Oncology Group, the hematopathology section processes approximately 4,500 tissue cases per year. Additional rotations are offered in coagulation, hemoglobin analysis, flow cytometric analysis, molecular hematopathology, and laboratory management. The fellow is encouraged to be involved with research projects and to participate in teaching.

This training program satisfies the requirements for the American Board of Pathology examination in Hematology.
