Openings for 2022-2023 and 2023-2024
The Cytopathology Fellowship Program offers two positions for a one-year ACGME-accredited program that provides comprehensive training in diagnostic cytology. Our laboratories are located at the University of Miami Hospital and Clinics/Jackson Memorial Medical Center which provides service to over 65,000 in-patients and more than 300,000 out-patients annually. We evaluate approximately 20,000 cases per year, of which 9,000 are non-gynecologic, including over 2,700 fine needle aspirations. The location of our laboratory within the Department of Pathology provides ready access to a wealth of teaching material and three large libraries which offer unique patient care perspectives and research-related services.
The fellows cover the Breast Health Center, Thyroid, Head & Neck and Surgical Oncology Clinics with a total of 12,000 visits a year and participate by performing FNA and immediate FNA analyses at these clinics. During their second quarter, in order to have an intense hands on experience in performance of FNA, the Fellows may take 2-4 weeks of rotation in the FNA Clinics. They take an active role in teaching medical students and pathology residents, present at departmental conferences, and participate in the cytology workshops given by faculty at local and national meetings.
