Cytopathology Fellowship

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 3200 fine needle aspiration biopsies.

The fellow assumes supervised signout responsibilities. Participation in conferences and teaching of pathology residents is required and the fellow is encouraged to design and complete a research project.

The laboratory is fully computerized, allowing easy retrieval of specimens by specimen type or diagnosis for teaching, research, and quality control purposes.
