Mayo Clinic offers a one- or two-year Hematopathology Fellowship at Mayo Clinic's campus in Rochester, Minnesota, that prepares you for a career in the diagnostic and research aspects of hematopathology.
Your training includes lymph node and bone marrow pathology, and experience in a busy clinical laboratory. You also have the opportunity to study a wide variety of hematologic disorders.
During your training, you are exposed to the entire spectrum of benign and malignant hematopathology, including:
- Peripheral blood smear and bone marrow pathology
- Lymph node pathology
- Ancillary techniques of cytochemistry, immunohistochemistry, flow cytometry, fluorescence in situ hybridization, and molecular genetics including next generation sequencing
- Detection and characterization of red blood cell abnormalities, including hemoglobinopathies, thalassemias, enzyme deficiencies, and membrane disorders
- Thrombosis and hemostasis
- Automated cell counting
- Bone marrow collections
The Hematopathology Fellowship is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education.
When you successfully complete this fellowship, you will meet the hematology certification requirements of The American Board of Pathology.
The Hematopathology Fellowship was accredited in 1990 and since that time we have trained over 30 ACGME-accredited hematopathologists who have gone on to successful academic and community practice careers.
The collaborative and collegial environment coupled with exposure to a wide variety of cases and the ability to do research on rare diseases enabled me to choose Mayo pathology for both my residency and fellowship. Working with a diverse group of faculty every day is truly inspiring and enhances the educational value of my training.
