The Hematopathology Fellowship program has an unexpected opening for 2021-22 starting July 1. Interested candidates should apply for either a one-year or two-year track. Candidates who are interested in a combination of a one year track for Hematopathology and Molecular Pathology fellowship to follow in 2022-23 would be given consideration by both fellowship programs. Applications will be reviewed until the position is filled.

This training program is designed to train academically-oriented physicians to be subspecialists in the area of hematopathology. Our program is structured to give fellows clearly-defined and graduated responsibilities, and delegated authority. The two year program consists of one accredited year of structure learning, followed by a second year of additional specialization, including electives and research opportunities, and clinical responsibility. In the second year, the fellow may also elect to participate in basic research in the area of lymphomagenesis and eligible fellows are granted independent sign-out responsibilities commensurate with their demonstrated expertise. A large number of community-based cases are reviewed as part of the Nebraska Leukemia/Lymphoma Study Group Network. The Medical Center also has an active hematology/oncology service and hematopoietic stem cell transplantation program. A full range of morphologic, histochemical, immunologic, cytogenetic, and molecular biologic techniques are performed as diagnostic and investigative tools. This program is approved by the American Board of Pathology (ABP) for subspecialty training in Hematology.
