Hematopathology Fellowship

The fellowship for academic year 2022-2023 has been filled.

The Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine of NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medicine offers a one-year ACGME-approved Hematopathology Fellowship under the directorship of Julia Geyer, MD. A second year may be available to qualified fellows who are interested in devoting the majority of the additional year to research. The fellowship is designed to prepare individuals for an academic career in hematopathology.

During their training, fellows are responsible for the clinical diagnostic service of the Hematopathology Laboratory, where they learn an integrated morphologic, immunologic, and molecular approach to the diagnosis and classification of hematopoietic neoplasms. Fellows have the opportunity to master the complete range of flow cytometric, immunohistochemical, cytogenetic, and molecular biologic techniques.

Fellows are also able to evaluate nearly 5,000 in-house adult and pediatric specimens and an additional 800 hematologic malignancies submitted for consultation from outside institutions. The exceptional mixture of cases analyzed assures a broad and diverse exposure to lymphoid neoplasms as well as bone marrow and spleen pathology.

Fellows usually participate in one or more clinical and/or basic science research projects, for which ample opportunities exist both within the Hematopathology Division and through collaborative projects with other laboratories within or outside of Weill Cornell.

Requirements: Candidates must have completed a four-year Anatomic Pathology/Clinical Pathology residency or three years of a straight Anatomic Pathology residency.

NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medicine only accepts J1 visas for all fellowships.

Types and Numbers of Appointments: Two positions are available each academic year.
