*New* ACGME approved Cytopathology Fellowship Program
Opening for 2019
This one-year advanced training in cytopathology is
designed to provide comprehensive training in cytopathology. The program has a
growing ultrasound (US)-guided FNA clinic that is operated by cytopathologists.
The fellow will have hands-on experience in performing both palpation- and
US-guided FNAs, and in providing rapid on-site evaluation (ROSE) of samples
prepared from US-, CT-, EUS- and EBUS-guided FNAs. Fellows will become familiar
with triaging specimens for appropriate ancillary tests and in utilizing
telecytopathology for ROSE and practical training in laboratory management and
quality control/assurance. The fellows will participate in a number of clinical
and educational activities: performing FNAs, in-hospital service and daily sign
out, multidisciplinary tumor board conferences, and teaching pathology
residents, cytotechnologists, and medical students. As members of a
research-intensive academic department, the fellows will also have the
opportunity to pursue academic interests in basic or translational research, to
present their work at national meetings and to submit research manuscripts for
publication in leading academic journals.
Requirements: Candidates must be Board certified or eligible for certification in AP or AP/CP and must be eligible for a license to practice in the state of New York.
Stipends: Commensurate with the level of training.
Applications: Submit the Standardized Pathology Fellowship application (available on the CAP website) with curriculum vitae, personal statement, and three letters of references. Currently accepting applications for the 2019 position.
