Listing Content


This one-year ACGME-accredited program provides fellows with broad and in-depth knowledge of adult and pediatric hematopathology and related immunologic, cytogenetic and molecular techniques. Hematopathology fellows at the University of Pennsylvania train at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania and at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. As tertiary referral centers, these nationally recognized institutions receive diverse, common and  unusual hematologic cases, both neoplastic and benign. The combined services annually process about 2400 bone marrow biopsies, 650 in house lymph nodes and other tissue specimens, 1400 extramural cases, and several hundred cases submitted in consultation by pathologists and/or oncologists from the United States and abroad. By the end of their training, fellows are expected to be competent and independent in all aspects of diagnostic hematopathology.


Candidates who have completed pathology training in an ACGME-accredited pathology residency program and be Board eligible by the start of their Hematopathology fellowship are preferred. Combined AP/CP training is recommended, but highly qualified AP-only or CP-only applicants may be considered. An interest in laboratory investigation and/or previous hematopathology-related research experience is desirable.
