Overview & Program Goals:

The overriding philosophy of this position is to create and enhance better diagnostic skills in both exfoliative and aspiration cytopathology in individuals considering a career in either academic or private practice pathology.

Consequently, the emphasis will be on reviewing and diagnosing clinical cytology specimens and interacting with the clinicians and radiologists involved with these patient specimens. Although the program structure is fairly rigid, some flexibility will be inherent depending on the levels of knowledge and skills of the incoming fellow.
