California, The Scripps Clinic-Hematopathology



The Scripps Clinic
Hematopathology Program

Applicants for 2016

Description:
The Scripps Clinic Hematopathology program provides a unique and comprehensive training experience in hematopathology in a stimulating and nurturing environment.

The philosophy of the program is to prepare fellows for tertiary care practice. The primary emphasis is the morphologic pathology of hematolymphoid disease, mirroring the ongoing primacy of skilled microscopy in precise and efficient diagnostic hematopathology. The interpretation of ancillary studies (immunostains, flow cytometry, FISH analysis, cytogenetics, and molecular studies) is a second major point of emphasis. The third focal point of the program is the pathologist-clinician relationship and the critical nature of information exchange, both verbal and written, in the management of patients with hematologic disease. The program educational philosophy is that optimal training is enabled by a high level of responsibility. As such, our fellows serve as the primary managers of the hematopathology service.

The unique practice setting of Scripps Clinic is an ideal environment for service-oriented hematopathology training. A blended academic and tertiary care private practice facility in an idyllic setting with a robust institutional fellowship GME program (including Hematology/Oncology) and high levels of personal responsibility for service management have proven advantageous as our graduates enter the hematopathology job market.

The program director is Dr. Robert Sharpe, and the assistant program director is Dr. Kelly Bethel.

Requirements:
Board-certified or Board-eligible in AP/CP or AP. California medical licensure required during fellowship.

Types and Numbers of Appointments:
Accredited for two one-year training spots. Usually accept one candidate per year.

Stipends:
Commensurate with postgraduate level of training.

Applications:
Application deadline is December 1, one and a half years prior to the anticipated July 1 start date.

New York, University of Rochester-Breast



University of Rochester Medical Center /
Breast Pathology Fellowship

Openings for 2017-18

Description: The Breast Pathology Fellowship at the University of Rochester Medical Center is a one year program that provides a thorough exposure to diagnostic surgical pathology of the breast as well as multidisciplinary management of breast disease. The main objective of the program is to provide the fellow with proficient diagnostic skills, in-depth understanding of the implications of pathologic diagnoses in the management of breast cancer patients, and a unique translational research experience. The fellow will conduct intraoperative gross examinations of breast specimens, sign out both in-house breast cases and consultation cases from outside clinics and hospitals, and discuss the cases at the weekly Multidisciplinary Breast Care Clinic Conference. The fellow will also have the opportunity to conduct clinical and/or translational research projects which will be tailored to meet the individual's interests. The breast pathology subspecialty is comprised of 5 breast pathologists under the leadership of Dr. David Hicks, an internationally recognized breast pathologist. Our subspecialty is committed to providing outstanding diagnostic services for excellent patient care and preparing the next generation of pathologists to be experts in the challenging field of breast pathology.

Requirements: Applicants must be board certified or eligible in Anatomic Pathology or Anatomic and Clinical Pathology and be eligible for a license to practice medicine in New York State.

Number of appointments: One position is available each academic year.

Responsibilities: The goal of the breast pathology fellowship program is to provide in depth clinical, research and teaching experience in the field of breast pathology so that at the end of the year, the fellow has achieved expertise in the field and is prepared to practice independently in either an academic or community hospital setting. This goal will be accomplished by offering a well-structured curriculum with responsibilities for trainees as follows:

1) Review and signout of breast cases: The fellow will be responsible for reviewing and dictating the breast cases (including consults and referrals from outside institutions) and signing out those cases with an attending breast pathologist on a daily basis. This includes those breast cases which are not handled by the daily resident assigned to biopsy/gross signout.

2) Intraoperative gross consultations: The fellow will participate in the evaluation of all breast surgical specimens submitted for intraoperative gross assessment under the supervision of an attending breast pathologist.

3) Reporting of biomarkers: The fellow will gradually develop expertise in interpreting and scoring the IHC results of estrogen and progesterone receptors and HER-2/neu overexpression by reviewing the IHC slides independently and signing out with the attending breast pathologist daily. He/she will also be trained in interpreting FISH results for HER-2/neu gene amplification.

4) Teach and supervise residents: The fellow will have an active role in teaching and supervising residents in the grossing room and will assist them in formulating gross and microscopic diagnoses when needed. He/she will prepare and give didactic lectures and unknown slide conferences for house staff and medical students when needed.

5) Multidisciplinary rotations: The fellow will have one week rotations in breast imaging, breast surgery, medical oncology and radiation oncology at the Comprehensive Breast Care Center at our Wilmot Cancer Institute. This will give him/her an insight into the significant role of the integrated multidisciplinary approach in treating breast cancer and will provide him/her with a better understanding of the clinical and management implications of pathologic diagnoses.

6) Multidisciplinary case conferences: The fellow will present the pathology findings at the weekly multidisciplinary case management conference. This is an excellent opportunity to interact with clinical colleagues and strengthen interpersonal communication skills.

7) Elective rotation: The fellow will be given an opportunity to rotate in a second subspecialty of his/her choice within the department, if requested.

Research: The breast pathology subspecialty is active in clinical, translational and collaborative research focused at understanding the biology and behavior of various types of breast cancers and associated high-risk lesions. The fellow is expected to participate in at least one clinico-pathological or translational research project during the year. He/she will be encouraged to present his/her work at any major breast pathology meeting and/or the annual USCAP meeting.

Community: Rochester is a midsize city in western New York with miles of lakeshore, endless summer festivals and winter sports. Located in the Finger Lakes Region, Rochester offers its residents a variety of outdoor activities. As the home for the internationally known Eastman School of Music, Rochester is also an ideal place for music lovers.

Stipends: Commensurate with the level of training.

Application: Applications should be submitted before December 31 of the previous year and must include the curriculum vitae, personal statement, three letters of recommendation and copies of USMLE scores.

Now accepting applications for positions for 2017-2018.

This is an exciting and innovative program that incorporates a required 24 week core component on the transfusion service and an 8 week core rotations on the coagulation and hemostasis service. This will be followed by 4 week rotations on the apheresis service, the hematology/oncology service and the American Red Cross Donor Collection Center. A 4 week elective period may be done either at Vanderbilt University, or as an away-rotation at another institution, including the possibility of a global health rotation in transfusion medicine in another country.

A major strength of this Fellowship compared with other TM fellowship programs in the US, is the foundation it will provide in delivering service through Diagnostic Management Teams (DMT) - an innovative health delivery modality pioneered in our department at VUMC, now being adopted at numerous other US medical institutions. The program also includes daily Morning Rounds with the attending physician and residents, as well as daily supervision of the Stem Cell Collection and Photopheresis Unit.

The fellowship includes a strong didactic component with regular lecturers, seminars, journal clubs, case conferences. The fellow will be required to present regularly at these meetings and will also regularly attend and participate in various QA/QC meetings including the Hospital Transfusion Committee. In addition, the fellow will regularly participate with the faculty in seminar meetings in hematology/oncology and in pediatrics/neonatology in order to give the fellow broad exposure to all fields of transfusion medicine. The fellowship also includes a 26-lecture series on "Fundamentals of Laboratory, Business and Human Resource Management" offered by faculty from the Owen Graduate School of Management and the Department of PMI that is attended by all residents and fellows in the department and encompasses topics in health policy; laboratory analytics, business management; as well as topics human resource management, negotiation and conflict management. In addition, the department has now established the Vanderbilt Pathology Education Research Group (VPERG) with a weekly lecture and research meeting series to promote education research in pathology for fellows, residents and faculty.

The fellow will also complete a small research project under faculty supervision. Funds will be provided to attend at least one conference during the year, and a $600 stipend will be provided for books and supplies. Publication of research, review and/or commentary papers will be strongly encouraged.

The residency program is a one-year program, including 11 months of forensic pathology with progressive responsibility, and 1 month of elective rotation. Our program is accredited for two training positions, one at the OCME in Edmonton and one at the OCME in Calgary.

The program at the OCME in Alberta offers the advantage of a medical examiner environment, the exposure to a large and varied case population across the entire age spectrum, a good proportion of unnatural deaths, a good ratio of resident to faculty, a strong and well organized didactic core, an excellent facility and infrastructure and the dedication of forensic pathologists as mentors.
