Hematopathology - U. of Arkansas

 Fellowship in Hematopathology

Program Director:  Robert Lorsbach, M.D., Ph.D.

Description:  The Department of Pathology at the University of Arkansas for
Medical Sciences offers a one-year ACGME-accredited fellowship in
hematopathology. The fellowship provides comprehensive training in morphologic
and immunologic hematopathology as well as subspecialty training in molecular
diagnostics, flow cytometry, blood coagulation, laboratory hematology,
pediatric hematopathology, and cytogenetics. The fellow will have increasing
levels of responsibility commensurate with level of performance and will
participate actively in diagnostic evaluations, clinical consultations, and
teaching programs in the department. Opportunities for clinical and
translational research are available, in which participation is strongly
encouraged. An option exists for a second non-accredited research year for
qualified individuals. The clinical material signed out by the UAMS
Hematopathology Division includes nearly 6000 bone marrow biopsies and
approximately 350 lymph node biopsies. The Division also provides consultation
and leukemia immunophenotyping services for Arkansas Childrens Hospital. Our
flow cytometry laboratory routinely performs 6-color flow cytometry for
diagnosis and minimal residual disease monitoring of hematolymphoid
malignancies. Fellowship training is enhanced by a close working relationship
with the UAMS Myeloma Institute for Research & Therapy, an international
center of excellence for research and treatment of plasma cell myeloma and with
the Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute, which is currently embarking on a
major infrastructural and programmatic expansion.
