About the Program
The Department of Pathology at Baylor College of Medicine and its affiliated hospitals offer a one-year Cytopathology Fellowship. Two positions are offered each year. Cytopathology fellowship is fully accredited by Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). The program is designed to provide comprehensive training in diagnostic cytology including fine needle aspiration biopsy with surgical pathology and clinical correlation
Fellows rotate through Ben Taub Hospital and the Michael E. DeBakey Veterans Affairs Medical Center. Training will be provided in both gynecologic and non-gynecologic materials including performance and interpretation of fine-needle aspiration biopsies. Incorporation of ancillary studies such as flow cytometry will be an integral component of the Cytopathology Fellows training. Research opportunities are available in cytopathology, immunocytochemistry, flow cytometry, and image analysis. Fellows are also responsible for the Cytopathology unknown and multidisciplinary tumor board conferences. The program offers extensive experience in the performance and interpretation of FNAs, in addition to a broad training experience.
Candidates must be board certified or eligible for certification in anatomic pathology or AP/CP and must be eligible for a license to practice in Texas.
