Cytopathology Fellowship University of Kentucky HealthCare, Lexington, KY
This program is a one-year clinically oriented program devoted to all areas of
cytopathology. Extensive training and experience in gynecologic,
nongynecologic, and fine needle aspiration biopsy cytology are provided, with
the pathology service performing most of the aspirates. The fellow rotates
through both the University and VA hospitals which are connected by a walkway.
The total number of cytology specimens accessioned annually is about 24,000
with about 13% abnormal gynecologic specimens, and over 1,700 FNAs. Time is
also devoted to laboratory management and quality assurance skills, teaching,
and a research project in cytopathology. Training in immunocytochemistry and
other ancillary techniques is included. Accredited by ACGME for 2 positions.
The fellowship lasts 12 months and will generally start July 1. The majority of
months will be spent doing clinical cytopathology including special techniques.
There will be three months of research/elective and one month for vacation and
professional meeting leave.
In the first months the fellow will be responsible for learning technical
procedures (including fine needle aspiration biopsy technique) and reviewing
cytology diagnostic concepts. The fellow will then take increasing
responsibility for sign-out of cytologic specimens as abilities and regulations
permit. Generally this will include 2-3 days a week of preliminary
review/sign-out at the University and occasional responsibilities at the VA.
The fellow will also manage the fine needle aspiration service under direct
supervision of the faculty. The fellow will help with clinical teaching of
other house staff including pathology residents and will be responsible for
actively participating in the following conferences: monthly Cytology
Conference, Tumor Board, Slide Conference, Advances in Diagnostic Pathology
Course, and occasional subspecialty conferences. The fellow will have some
quality assurance responsibilities and will be given occasional laboratory
ELECTIVES AND RESEARCH
The fellow is expected to participate in at least one research project related
to cytopathology culminating in a paper and/or a presentation at a scientific
meeting. Electives can be spent in research and/or another related laboratory
