Cytopathology Fellowship


Thank you for your interest in the Cytopathology Fellowship Program at the University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics.

Accepting applications for 2020-2021 and 2021-2022

It is the aim of the University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics cytopathology fellowship to provide the trainee with the in-depth knowledge and competence necessary for the practice of pathology with specialty expertise in cytopathology. This training includes not only interpretation of all types of cytologic specimens, but performance of fine needle aspirations (FNA) and assessment of pathologic specimens for adequacy using cytologic technique.

Fellows will have opportunity to gain the experience and knowledge of technical, scientific and regulatory aspects of the practice of cytopathology necessary for oversight and administration of a cytopathology laboratory. Fellows who wish to pursue an academic career can receive the depth and breadth of training necessary to pursue an academic career with specialty expertise in cytopathology.
