UAB Department of Pathology
Cytopathology Fellowship

Openings for 2019, 2020 and 2021
Number of appointments per year - 2

Description: The Division of Anatomic Pathology at the University of Alabama Medical Center, Birmingham, offers a one-year ACGME-approved fellowship experience in Cytopathology, with rotations entirely at the University of Alabama Hospital. The UAB Cytopathology laboratory receives approximately 14,500 gynecologic cases per year (conventional and liquid based) and 7,800 non-gynecologic cases per year, including fluids, FNAs, EUS-FNAs, and pulmonary cases. Fellows actively participate in previewing and signing out all types of Cytopathology cases, perform rapid on-site evaluation and participate in colposcopic biopsy sign out. In addition, fellows will have hands-on experience with ultrasound-guided thyroid FNA. Opportunities for elective rotation in subspecialty areas of Surgical Pathology are available, making the program flexible and individually tailored. Participation in ongoing clinical studies and translational research is also encouraged, leading to publications and presentations at national meetings. The program is optimized with structured didactic lectures and slide sessions relevant to daily practice and Board examination, as well as continuing education through the American Society of Cytopathology monthly webinars. Faculty evaluation of fellows focuses on achievement of competency in patient care, medical knowledge, practice-based learning and improvement, interpersonal and communication skills, professionalism, and lastly system-based practice. Additionally, progress is evaluated through the Progressive Evaluation of Competency exam provided by the American Society of Cytopathology, and through the quarterly meeting of the Clinical Competency Committee.

This program is directed by Frida Rosenblum, M.D., Assistant Professor of Pathology.

    Two Surgical Pathology Fellowship Openings
    One remaining for 2019-2020
    One remaining for 2020-2021

    The Surgical Pathology Fellowship at UTMB offers advanced training with in-depth exposure to the full spectrum of Surgical Pathology. The Division evaluates approximately 20,000 surgical pathology cases each year, with a great diversity of neoplastic and non-neoplastic specimens and a high degree of complexity. There are nine full-time surgical pathologists (including cytopathologists) and numerous subspecialty consultants on staff. Sign out of cases is by subspecialty, with each faculty member specializing in one primary and one or more secondary subspecialties. All of the major subspecialties are well represented and experienced during the fellowship including GI, GU, Gyn, Breast, Head and Neck, Thoracic, Bone and Soft Tissue, Pediatric, Medical Renal, Liver and Transplant pathology. Elective time in Neuropathology, Hematopathology, Dermatopathology, Cytopathology or Molecular Pathology is also available to supplement the core rotations. In addition, there are significant opportunities for clinical and basic research. The range of experience ensures that the fellow will be well-prepared for a career in academia or in private practice, and there is a strong record of former fellows having accomplished those objectives.

    Two surgical pathology fellows are accepted each year, for a one year term. Primary responsibilities consist of previewing cases, preparing reports, and presenting cases at tumor boards and other interdepartmental conferences. Fellows play an important role as teachers and mentors to the residents on the surgical pathology rotation, helping them develop diagnostic skills and showing interesting cases at the multi-headed microscope. In the gross room the fellows serve in an advisory capacity but do not routinely gross specimens. On the frozen section service, and in all other aspects of surgical pathology, the faculty provide the fellows with a nurturing and supportive environment as they gradually develop their own skills and confidence to make the transition from 'trainee' to 'independent practitioner'.

    Requirements: Candidates must have completed 3 years of a GME approved AP or AP/CP residency training and be Board eligible in Pathology by the start date of the fellowship. Citizenship, permanent residency, or J1 visa status is also required.

    2020-2021

    This is a one-year ACGME-accredited program designed for individuals who wish to pursue intense training in Surgical Pathology in an environment that allows graduated responsibility and independent work necessary to build diagnostic confidence and maturity. This fellowship provides the necessary training for the fellow to function upon completion as an academic pathologist with responsibilities in service, teaching, and research, or as a community-based pathologist with responsibilities primarily in service and laboratory management. The Surgical Pathology laboratory at VCU Medical Center processes over 20,000 cases/year representing benign and malignant pathology, including biopsies as well as large complex resections, from all organ systems. Sign-out in Surgical Pathology is subspecialized, assuring trainee interaction with faculty with expertise in specific organ system pathology. The general framework of this fellowship includes: nine months rotations through various subspecialty services (GI and Liver pathology, Gynecologic Pathology, Genitourinary Pathology, Breast/Heart/Lung Pathology, General, Head and Neck Pathology, and Dermatopathology) and three months of elective rotations. The fellowship allows potential flexibility in the schedule, depending on the fellow's subspecialty interest (e.g., primarily Gynecologic Pathology focus). With sufficient preparation, the fellow "mock" signs out the cases as a junior attending with the resident, handles frozen sections and consultation cases, instructs the residents in processing complex specimens. Presentations at interdisciplinary conferences provides important correlation with clinical management consequences. Elective rotations are available in Neuropathology, Cytopathology, Molecular Pathology, or selected clinical pathology services (Hematopathology, Blood Bank). The fellow is expected to participate in one of the many departmental research projects, including presentation at national meetings and peer-reviewed publication encouraged.

    Requirements: Candidates must have satisfactorily completed an accredited training program in AP or AP/CP and passed USMLE Step 3.
