This fellowship provides one full year of advanced training in diagnostic cytology and the performance of FNAs in an FNA clinic. The cytology service evaluates approximately 40,000 cases per year, of which 6,000 are nongynecologic specimens that include about 3200 fine needle aspiration biopsies.
The fellow assumes supervised signout responsibilities. Participation in conferences and teaching of pathology residents is required. The fellow is encouraged to design and complete a research project, and resources include a circulating tumor cell core facility and molecular diagnostics.
The laboratory is fully computerized, allowing easy retrieval of specimens by specimen type or diagnosis for teaching, research, and quality control purposes.
Preference will be given to candidates who are Board certified or eligible for certification by the American Board of Pathology in anatomic pathology or anatomic and clinical pathology and who have demonstrated an interest in pursuing an academic career in cytopathology. Applicants must be eligible for a Massachusetts medical license.
