The Hematopathology Fellowship at University of Alabama (UAB) is a one year program which is fully accredited for subspecialty board certification. The program includes experience in all major aspects of hematopathology, including morphology, immunocytochemistry, flow cytometry and diagnostic molecular biology approaches. There are an estimated 900 lymph node workups, 1,400 bone marrow biopsies and 4,100 flow cytometry cases per year. Additional material is received from outside institutions for immunohistochemistry, in-situ hybridization and flow cytometric analysis.
