Gastrointestinal Pathology FellowshipEdit

Hematopathology FellowshipEdit

The Department of Pathology of the University of Arizona College of Medicine is offering a Fellowship in Hematopathology, to start July 1. This is a 1- year, ACGME approved fellowship with emphasis on both diagnostic skills and research.

The clinical service year will include acquisition of diagnostic skills in bone marrow, lymph node, nonmalignant laboratory-based hematology and teaching of residents and medical students. This will include use of our extensive automated immunohistochemistry facility, flow cytometry laboratory, specialized coagulation laboratory and developing molecular diagnostics section. In addition, the Hematopathology section is actively involved in support of the adult and pediatric bone marrow transplant programs, regional Hemophilia Center, and Artificial Heart transplant program.

The research year will consist of developing and executing a research project with emphasis on publication of data and initiation of a project with potential for independent funding.

There is a strong tradition of excellence in Hematopathology at the University of Arizona. We are recognized as a regional Hematopathology referral center for the Southwest. We are an active participant in the Southwest Oncology Group including being the tissue repository for all lymphoma studies and head their Lymphoma Correlative Sciences Committee. Molecular testing, including a microarray core facility, is available.

The University of Arizona offers a competitive salary and benefits package. The opportunities for recreational and educational activities along with a sunny and thriving desert climate are very attractive features. We are an EEO/AA employer.
