Hematopathology Fellowship

Aims Statement

The primary aim of our Hematopathology fellowship program is to produce graduates who are capable of independently diagnosing and reporting benign and malignant hematopoietic disease in a wide variety of types, using morphology and ancillary techniques. Our fellowship aims to produce life-long scholars who are prepared to teach future generations of pathologists and provide subspecialty care and expertise. Our program aims to promote a supportive and compassionate learning environment.


The Hematopathology Fellowship is a one-year ACGME-accredited program with three positions/year. Our service handles approximately 2,000 bone marrows, 800 tissue cases, 5,500 flow cytometry cases, 600 consults, and 6,000 peripheral blood/body fluid specimens yearly. The diversity of cases provides exposure to a wide variety of hematopoietic benign and malignant diseases, in both adult and pediatric populations. The program provides unparalleled in-depth training in flow cytometry, including interpretation of leukemia/lymphoma, minimal residual disease, and paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH) testing.

The faculty team is composed of seven enthusiastic board-certified hematopathologists, with diverse academic interests and background. We strive to maximize the educational opportunities provided by the breadth of our cases, while promoting learning in a low-stress and encouraging environment. Our ultimate goal is to prepare the fellow for a successful career, whether in community-based hospital, academic practice, or commercial/reference laboratory setting.
