The MGP fellowship includes six months of hands-on training in the Molecular Pathology Laboratory with special emphasis on molecular genetics, infectious disease and oncology. Another three to four months are spent predominantly in the Genetics Division of the Department of Pediatrics. This block includes one month of general genetics, one month of specialty genetics rotations in the cancer center and neurology clinics and one month of cytogenetics training. The Cytogenetics Laboratory will provide exposure to traditional cytogenetics, FISH and Comparative Genomic Hybridization using microarray technology. During these rotations the fellow learns the role of an attending physician, with levels of responsibility and supervision appropriate for the level of training and experience. The fellow is also exposed to administrative and management aspects of directing a modern molecular diagnostics laboratory. The remaining three months are spent with independent test development in the Molecular Pathology Laboratory or on basic research projects in any one of numerous laboratories associated with the program. The fellows are encouraged to use this time to obtain preliminary data serving as the basis for applications for career development grants from federal and private agencies.

Tennessee, Vanderbilt University Medical Center-Hematopathology



Fellowship in Hematopathology
Opening for July 2019

The Vanderbilt University Medical Center Hematopathology Fellowship Program has two openings for a one-year fellowship starting July 2019 that includes adult and pediatric hematopathology, flow cytometry, cytogenetics, and molecular pathology as well as coagulation, wet hematology, and benign hematology.

Vanderbilt is at the very cutting edge of incorporating advanced diagnostics into patient care. Through innovative technological interfaces with the electronic medical record, the hematopathologist can quickly review a patient’s history and previous lab results to direct the entire panel of lab tests that need to be ordered for every patient receiving a bone marrow biopsy. Once the results from the cytogenetic, molecular and flow cytometry reports are available, they are incorporated into an over-arching comprehensive report that includes not only diagnostic information but also specifies prognosis and optimal methods for minimal residual disease detection. This suite of services integrating the ordering and interpretation of morphologic and laboratory data is the Diagnostic Management Team (DMT). Through the hematologic malignancy DMT project, the pathologist guides clinical decision-making and effective test utilization in diagnosing and treating hematologic disorders.

The division evaluates approximately 5,400 Hematopathology cases including 3,000 in-house bone marrows, 550 in-house tissue biopsies, 1,000 body fluids, and 1,100 consults/ referrals, as well as over 5,000 flow cytometry cases per year from Vanderbilt Hospital and Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt and an additional 900 morphology cases and nearly 1,000 flow cytometry cases per year from the VA Tennessee Valley Healthcare System.

To apply, please submit application*, cover letter, CV, and 3 letters of recommendation (sent directly from the letter writer), via email to:
