Cytopathology Fellowship

This fellowship provides one year of advanced training in diagnostic cytopathology and the performance of fine needle aspirations under the supervision of faculty who are board certified cytopathologists. The fellow will perform fine needle aspirations and provide immediate interpretations for specimens with supervision. The cytopathology service has a high volume of gynecologic Pap tests and non-gynecologic specimens, including fine needle aspiration specimens and core biopsies.  Fellows assume graduated responsibility throughout the year. The fellow will also learn research and quality assurance principles, and complete a scholarly project during their programmatic year. 


Preference will be given to candidates who are Board certified or are eligible for certification by the American Board of Pathology in anatomic pathology or anatomic and clinical pathology. 

Stipends: Commensurate with the level of training.
