This is a one-year ACGME-approved fellowship program in Hematopathology. For over 17 years, we have been providing excellent materials and have instructors known for their highly personal, one-on-one teaching approach. The overall goal of this program is to develop the competencies needed to become a laboratory director in hematology. The Hematology program represents advanced training for individuals who have already completed significant training in Anatomic and/or Clinical Pathology. In this Hematopathology Fellowship, trainees will be responsible for in-depth study of the principles, applications and clinical relevancy of all tests performed in our affiliated laboratories as well as those sent to reference laboratories. They will be expected to be able to interpret tests, apply quality assurance principles and become proficient in special skills such as light microscopy and flow cytometry. On the Surgical Pathology Service, the General Pathology Residents contacts the Hematopathology Fellow in order to review and discuss cases with a high probability of an unsuspected lymphoma/leukemia; if this seems likely, then these cases are transferred to the Hematopathology Service for further evaluation. In the Clinical Pathology Laboratories, Hematopathology Fellows answer front-line questions from clinicians with back-up support from the Laboratory Director. The Hematopathology Fellow participates in conferences, obtains information from, and reports diagnoses to clinical colleagues in Adult Oncology, Adult Hematology and Pediatric Hematology-Oncology.
Einstein/Montefiore are NIH-designated centers for oncology and sickle cell disease. The Hematopathology faculty has broad expertise in teaching morphology, molecular diagnosis, immunohistochemistry, flow cytometry, hemoglobinopathies, coagulation, classical and molecular cytogenetics, lab management and other aspects of laboratory hematology. Mastery of diagnostic hemopathology and molecular pathology with research leading to publication is strongly encouraged. The fellows will achieve a solid base of competencies to pursue an academic or private practice career.
Applicants must be eligible for AP or AP/CP Board certification.
Appointment is for one year. Salary based on schedule for residents.
CAP Standardized application for Pathology fellowships, Curriculum vitae, 3 letters of recommendation, Brief statement of career goals, and transcript of USMLE scores.
