Cytopathology FellowshipEdit

Hematopathology FellowshipEdit

The fellowship is one year in length. The primary rotation is hematology, where the duties include signing out bone marrow biopsy specimens. Scott & White receives over 600 bone marrow specimens per year. Other rotations include cytogenetics, molecular, coagulation, and flow cytometry. Unique to the program, there are also 2-3 months of surgical pathology rotations, which serve to increase exposure to lymph node specimens, but also to maintain general surgical pathology skills. Additional duties of the fellow include participation in a weekly leukemia/lymphoma tumor board and periodic teaching conferences for the residents.
