Description:

The Division of Anatomic Pathology at the University of Alabama Medical Center, Birmingham, offers a one-year ACGME-approved fellowship experience in Cytopathology. The University of Alabama at Birmingham Cytopathology laboratory receives approximately 14,500 gynecologic cases per year (conventional and liquid based) and 7,800 non-gynecologic cases per year, including fluids, FNAs, EUS-FNAs, and pulmonary cases. Fellows actively participate in rapid on-site evaluation of cases and colposcopy sign out. In addition, fellows will have hands-on experience with ultrasound guided thyroid FNA. Opportunities for elective rotation in subspecialty areas of surgical pathology are available. Participation in ongoing clinical studies and translational research is also encouraged. Rotations are entirely at the University of Alabama Hospital.

This program is directed by Frida Rosenblum, M.D., Assistant Professor of Pathology.
