Hematopathology Fellowship Program Group

Hematopathology Fellowship Program

The Hematopathology Fellowship Program at City of Hope is a one-year program primarily designed for fellows interested in academic hematopathology. There is an optional non-ACGME year focused on research and independent sign out. Supporting one of the largest bone marrow transplantation programs in the United States, and enjoying an active consultation service, the program evaluates more than 3,000 diagnostic specimens involving peripheral blood, bone marrow, lymph nodes and extranodal biopsies each year.
The first fellowship year is Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education accredited and focuses on diagnostic hematopathology. Didactic lectures, Pathology Grand Rounds, slide seminars, patient care conferences, bimonthly research meetings and a journal club are part of the educational experience. During the optional second year, fellows continue their research projects and participate as instructors in independent hematopathology case sign out within the division, preparing them for academic careers.
