The Hematopathology Fellowship at The 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 800 lymph node workups, 1000 bone marrow biopsies and 2600 flow cytometry cases per year. Additional material is received from outside institutions for immunohistochemistry, in-situ hybridization and flow cytometric analysis.
Material is derived from The University of Alabama Hospitals and Clinics (which includes a Comprehensive Cancer Center, an active organ transplantation program, and a major AIDS center), from the Birmingham VA Medical Center, from The Children’s Hospital of Alabama, and from outside consultations. The fellow will be involved in research, either clinical or translational, during the fellowship year.
The program is directed by Vishnu V. B. Reddy, M.D.
