Training will include experience in bone marrow and lymph node pathology, immunophenotyping by flow cytometry, genetic and molecular testing, coagulation, and other areas of laboratory hematology. Following initial experience, it is expected that the fellow will assume responsibility comparable to a junior faculty member.
Numerous conferences as well as teaching opportunities with students are an integral part of the program. It is anticipated that an area of research interest will be identified early in the fellowship and that a clinical research project will be completed during the training.
There is a high level of interaction with the clinical division of hematology. A one-year training curriculum is offered.
Candidates must have satisfactorily completed pathology training from an ACGME-accredited program in anatomic pathology, clinical pathology, or combined AP/CP by the start of their fellowship training. This previous training should include at least six months in hematopathology and laboratory hematology.
In unusual circumstances, candidates who have completed at least two years of pathology training (minimum ACGME requirement) may also be considered. Physician must be eligible for a Texas institutional permit.
Support will be commensurate with the applicant's level of training.
