Active programs in pediatric hematopathology, molecular diagnostics, cytogenetics, immunopathology, pediatric clinical chemistry, pediatric transfusion medicine, and pediatric microbiology offer an additional opportunity for training. Research opportunities are available in both anatomic and clinical pathology.
