About the Program
Number of Positions: Two positions per year
Length: 1-year fellowship
The Hematopathology Fellowship Program at Baylor College of Medicine has been in existence since July 1, 1987. Since the start of the fellowship we have trained multiple fellows with diverse interests (academic, research, clinical). The philosophy of our Hematopathology fellowship program is to provide broad exposure to the evaluation of hematopathological diseases and to the technology that can be utilized to diagnose hematologic disorders correctly. Of note, being present in the world’s largest medical center, our fellows get to take advantage of the other excellent institutions being present in the vicinity (see example of the rotation schedule). To point out a unique feature is the dedicated rotation in a pediatric hospital, which helps educate and familiarize our fellows with the pediatric hematologic disorders, such as Inherited bone marrow failure syndromes, refractory cytopenias of childhood etc. Our past fellows have gone on to practice in diverse areas, such as academic positions, private practice groups, or into additional fellowships such as cytopathology, surgical pathology, pediatric pathology, and molecular genetic pathology.
