Stony Brook University Hospital
*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.
