About the Program

The Cytopathology Fellowship is an ACGME accredited program designed to train academically-oriented cytopathologists. Two positions are offered. Fellowships include both clinical and research training. Clinical training includes signing out gyn cytology (about 15,000 a year), aspirates (about 2,500) and other non-gyn specimens (about 4,000). An active pathology based FNAB clinic is present where fellows learn how to perform, smear, and interpret FNABs. Immunocytochemistry is routinely utilized on clinical specimens. Research interests of the faculty include fine needle aspiration biopsy, molecular techniques, gastrointestinal and liver pathology, and urologic pathology.
