This is a one-year Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME)-accredited fellowship program in diagnostic cytopathology offered by the Cytology Service of the Department of Pathology. The fellowship provides training in all areas of cytology, including performance of FNAs. The material comprises approximately 32,500 specimens per year, including gynecologic specimens and non-gynecologic samples, of which approximately 5,500 are imaging-guided FNAs and 600 are pathologist-performed FNAs. Ancillary tests, such as flow cytometry, immunohistochemistry and molecular pathology are available. Close interaction with a subspecialized surgical pathology department enhances the learning experience. The fellowship has a structured educational curriculum, which includes screening, weekly unknowns, and formal didactics. Fellows are encouraged to participate in research projects with members of the department and/or in cooperation with clinicians.
