The Department of Laboratory Medicine offers a one-year ACGME-accredited fellowship with emphasis on diagnostic hematopathology and laboratory hematology. The program includes training in: peripheral smear, body fluid cytopathology, bone marrow and lymph node morphology interpretation; laboratory hematology; coagulation; flow cytometric immunophenotyping; immunohistochemistry; molecular diagnostics; and chromosomal and molecular cytogenetics. 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 lymph node service comprising both internal cases and cases sent to UCSF for consultation is approximately 200 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.
Support is commensurate with the candidate’s level of training.
