Molecular Genetic Path Fellowship 2014 - UAB
University of Alabama at Birmingham
Molecular Genetic Pathology Fellowship for July 2014
Description of Program
The University of Alabama at Birmingham Departments of Pathology and Genetics
jointly offer a one-year ACGME accredited fellowship in molecular genetic
pathology. The fellowship is designed to train academically oriented
pathologists and medical geneticists for a career in molecular genetic
pathology, including hematology/oncology, infectious diseases, identity
testing, molecular diagnostics of Mendelian disorders, cytogenetics, and
medical genetics. After completion of this program, the fellow will be eligible
to take the Molecular Genetic Pathology board examination cosponsored by ABP
Training includes didactic courses, selected laboratory rotations and an
in-depth research experience. The fellow will gain experience in a broad range
of molecular techniques including nucleic acid extraction and amplification
(PCR, RT-PCR, real-time PCR, NASBA, and SDA), Southern blotting, sequencing,
capillary electrophoresis, traditional cytogenetics, FISH, microarray and next
generation sequencing technology. Trainees are expected to function as junior
attendings and will be actively involved in test development, performance,
preparation of report of sign-out, participation in clinic/inpatient visits and
clinical consultation. Fellows are also exposed to administrative aspects of
directing a modern molecular diagnostics laboratory. Opportunities for research
experience are available in the first and subsequent years.
This program is directed by Shuko Harada, MD. firstname.lastname@example.org, Assistant
Professor of Pathology and Head, Section of Molecular Pathology.
