Listing Content

Description

The Cytopathology Section of the Department of Pathology offers two ACGME approved one-year fellowship positions in Cytopathology. The program is based at Montefiore Medical Center, and draws material from three hospitals (1,500 beds) and a large ambulatory network. There is extensive clinical material and strong research programs: the Cytopathology Section accessioned over 60,000 specimens last year. Approximately 85% of the specimens were in gynecologic cytology (with a high abnormal rate). Among the nongynecologic specimens (more than 10,000) there were approximately 3,000 aspiration biopsies from superficial and deep locations.

The program is staffed by six board certified cytopathologists. The fellows receive personal guidance and gain experience in diagnostic evaluation of all cytologic specimens with histologic correlations, hands on performance of aspiration biopsies of palpable lesions and evaluation of deep aspirates, we are also starting out ultrasound guided FNA service that will be performed by pathologists. The fellows participate in the programs strong research programs, which include immunocytochemistry, in situ hybridization, translational and molecular genetics. There is full access to the department's large surgical pathology case file and our collection of cytopathology teaching sets. The fellows participate in the Progressive Evaluation of Competency (PEC) exams.
