The Hematopathology Fellowship has been highly successful in attracting outstanding applicants and in providing them with training in hematopathology, emphasizing outstanding clinical diagnosis, and specialized diagnostic tools including molecular diagnostics and flow cytometry. The fellowship has been ACGME accredited since 2000, and graduating fellows have had a nearly a 100% first time pass rate on the accrediting examination given by the American Board of Pathology. Graduating fellows have gone on to establish independent careers in academic medicine, including appointments in recent years at the Moffit Cancer Center, Loyola University, The University of California -Davis, The Mayo Clinic, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, and the Cleveland Clinic. Two of recent graduates have successfully competed for independent NIH funding. Fellows are encouraged to participate in clinical research, and have successfully completed studies on a variety of topics, as briefly mentioned below. Venkataraman G, Rizzo KA, Chavez JJ, et al.
