The Department of Pathology at University Hospitals of Cleveland Medical Center/Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine now has an additional Hematopathology Fellowship position for the 2019-2020 academic year.
Description: A one-year, ACGME-accredited comprehensive fellowship in Hematopathology, with training in interpretation of peripheral blood and body fluid smears, bone marrow biopsies, lymph node biopsies, and specialized testing for benign hematologic disorders, including hemoglobin analysis. In addition, there is a flow cytometry lab with an extensive panel menu. Fellows also have interaction with in-house Genetic and Molecular labs, including in-house next-generation sequencing panels for myeloid and lymphoid malignancies. Training emphasizes comprehensive analysis of malignant hematology cases, with incorporation of flow cytometry and the latest genetic and molecular testing.
At our tertiary referral center, a wide range of both benign and neoplastic hematologic diseases is seen, including diseases found in specialized populations such as neonates, pediatrics/young adults, and bone marrow transplant patients. There are approximately 2,000 bone marrow, 800 lymphoma, and 5,000 flow cytometry work-ups yearly.
The fellowship also includes instruction in lab management and opportunity for research projects. Presentation of projects at national meetings is strongly encouraged.
