This one-year ACGME-accredited cytopathology fellowship provides extensive cytopathology service responsibilities with progressive responsibility in rapid onsite interpretation and preliminary sign-out of cases for one fellow. In 2019, 7,621 cytopathology cases were accessioned (3,825 Gyn; 3,796 Non-Gyn with 2,213 FNA). Fellows perform and assist FNA biopsies, have access to immunohistochemistry, flow cytometry, molecular pathology, and surgical pathology, and sign-out a subset of concurrent biopsies. Quality assurance, resident teaching, interdepartmental conferences, proficiency testing, lab inspection, and laboratory management responsibilities prepare fellows for private or academic practice. One elective rotation, usually surgical pathology, hematopathology or research, is provided. Completion of a quality improvement project is expected. Highlights include fellow ownership of the service, excellent interdepartmental clinician interaction, and high volume thoracic cytopathology.
