Cytopath Fellowship 2013 - New York, Roswell Park Cancer Institute
New York, Roswell Park Cancer Institute-Cytopathology
Unexpected Opening for 2013
Roswell Park Cancer Institute (RPCI) offers an ACGME-accredited one-year
Fellowship in Cytopathology beginning July 2013.
RPCI, founded in 1898, is the oldest NCI-funded Comprehensive Cancer Center.
The environment is fast-paced, dynamic, collegial, and exciting!
The Cytopathology Fellowship provides advanced training in the studies of
morphologic abnormality of cells from precursor lesions to frank malignancy.
Cytopathologists who train an additional year beyond the Anatomic or
Anatomic/Clinical Pathology Residencies are trained in the performance and
acquisition of cytologic material for diagnosis. This is an ACGME accredited
fellowship in Cytopathology. The fellow selected for this position will
participate in fine needle aspirations, disease specific multidisciplinary
conferences, teaching of junior residents and be an active participant in a
scientific research project for submission, presentation and publication in a
cytology or scientific journal.
Requirements: Because of the complex nature of the diseases encountered at
RPCI, only residents who have completed their training in an ACGME-accredited
Program in either a three-year AP or four-year AP/CP Program by the Fellowship
start date will be considered. A fellow who has passed the American Board of
Pathology in AP or AP/CP before starting the fellowship in Cytopathology is
highly desirable. In addition, candidates must be eligible for a New York State
Medical License or Limited Permit.
