The Department of Pathology at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center is offering a unique two-year Hematopathology Fellowship Program for two positions in 2020-2022. The fellowship involves two years of training in Hematopathology, focusing on morphologic, flow cytometric immunophenotyping, clinicopathologic and genetic/genomic analysis of hematopoietic malignancies. The fellows have rotations in lymphoma and leukemia sign out services as well as rotations in flow cytometry, cytogenetics, molecular pathology and hematology laboratories during the first year which is ACGME accredited. The second year of the fellowship offers a unique opportunity to function as a junior attending/instructor for half of the year with sign out responsibilities. The fellows spend the other half of the year immersing in their research projects.

Hematopathology Service at Memorial Sloan Kettering (MSK) is a high volume clinical service where 20000 hematological malignancy biopsies and flow cytometry cases  are accessioned per year. Eleven hematopathology faculty are enthusiastically engaged in teaching the fellows in all areas of hematopathology. Didactic lectures and microscope sessions are given by the faculty to the fellows throughout the year. The fellow is exposed to research opportunities based on a high-volume MSKCC hospital clinical service as well as an extramural consult service. In addition, participation is required in relevant educational activities, such as weekly consensus/interesting case conference, weekly lymphoma and leukemia tumor boards, journal clubs, as well as other academic activities offered by the Department of Pathology and Hematology/Oncology Departments.  

All applicants should be MDs or MD/PhDs who have completed residency training in AP, CP or AP/CP in the United States (ACGME accredited) or Canada and who are certified (or are eligible for certification) by the American Board of Pathology.

The deadline for application is October 15, 2018.
