Cytopathology Fellowship
Pathology case review conference

The cytopathology fellowship program is a one-year, ACGME-accredited fellowship that focuses exclusively on gynecological cytology, non-gynecological cytology and fine needle aspiration biopsy cytology. Weekly didactic and microscopic conferences, monthly lectures, as well as a quarterly journal club supplement this training. The fellow is engaged in the examination of cytopathologic material under the supervision of the attending faculty. The program also includes participation in the intra-operative cytology consultative service. Fellows are encouraged to participate in research projects with members of the department and/or in cooperation with clinicians.


The department of pathology is committed to fostering research by the faculty and fellows. Our institution has been engaged in clinically applied research for many years and is enriched by the presence of faculty who have demonstrated excellence in performing research and in training new investigators.

A Dean's Research Grant is available to residents and fellows. Every spring, Residents Research Day is held, with residents and fellows from all disciplines presenting their work. An annual award for resident/fellow research is a reflection of the research in our training programs. Well-designed studies conducted in collaboration with the faculty have resulted in residents and fellows presenting their research at regional, national and international meetings. Funding is made available for these presentations and residents/fellows are strongly encouraged to publish the results of their scientific projects.
