Position description

The Department of Pathology offers a one-year fellowship program in hematopathology. The purpose of this fellowship is to provide advanced training in hematopathology using state of the art supportive diagnostic techniques, in a broad spectrum of pediatric and adult morphologic hematopathology, including disorders of the bone marrow, peripheral blood, lymph node and other solid tissues, and coagulation. The fellow will gain experience in laboratory management in hematology, flow cytometry, and molecular diagnostics laboratories and in consulting on hematology patients.

Clinical material includes both UCLA patient cases as well as hematopathology consult cases. Numerous teaching conferences supplement our clinical workload. Fellows will be exposed to a full range of techniques: flow cytometry, DNA content analysis, immunoperoxidase procedures, FISH, conventional karyotyping, and other molecular/genetic diagnostic studies; the fellow will become proficient with the integration of specialized testing into diagnostic decision-making. Research opportunities in basic and clinical problems in hematopathology are available. A Department of Pathology endowed training grant fund is available to support translational research projects and educational travel.
