The Department of Laboratory Medicine offers a one-year ACGME-accredited fellowship with emphasis on diagnostic hematopathology and laboratory hematology. Each year 2 positions are available in this 1-year program. The fellow serves as the primary consultant for the Hematology Laboratory and interacts with Laboratory Medicine residents and Hematology-Oncology clinical fellows. The hematology laboratory performs approximately 600,000 hematology and coagulation tests per year and 1,800 bone marrows. The lymphoma service comprising both internal cases and cases sent to UCSF for consultation is approximately 400 per year and is complemented by a large set of teaching cases. The fellow participates with faculty mentors to gain experience in improving testing in the clinical laboratory, augmenting the teaching program and pursuing an investigative project in the broad field of hematopathology.


Applicants must be Board-certified or eligible in anatomic and/or clinical pathology and eligible for California medical licensure. The University undertakes affirmative action to assure equal employment opportunity for underutilized minorities and women, for persons with disabilities, and for covered veterans. All qualified applicants are encouraged to apply, including minorities and women.


Support is commensurate with the candidate’s level of training.
