Hematopathology

Overview

The Hematopathology Fellowship at UAB is a one-year program, fully accredited by ACGME for two fellows towards subspecialty board certification. The program includes experience in all major aspects of hematopathology, including morphology, immunocytochemistry, flow cytometry, coagulation, pediatric hematopathology and diagnostic molecular pathology. Fellows are responsible for initial review, final drafts of bone marrow, lymph node biopsies, complex consult cases and other hematopoietic entities.  Fellows supervise the residents in bone marrow, flow cytometry, lymph node diagnosis and consults. Fellows have teaching responsibilities to junior residents and at MS-II student Hematology/Oncology module of the UAB School of Medicine. The fellows also participate in clinical research projects during the fellowship, and presentation at national meetings is strongly encouraged.

Hematopathology fellows guide and share cases, and review with faculty member at AM or PM session at multiheaded microscopes. Fellows are usually present at each sign-out, and there are often rotating Hem/Onc fellows or medical students. Residents are responsible for reporting all diagnostic modalities on their cases, for example: bone marrow biopsy, aspirate smear, peripheral blood smear, flow cytometry, and immunohistochemistry are reviewed together by one resident-fellow- faculty team, reinforcing the importance of integrated reporting of hematologic neoplasms. The residents incorporate other ancillary test results into the draft reports.  The Hematopathology faculty give didactic lectures to the residents during the rotation, including an intensive series of practically-oriented lectures and slide review sessions during the daily sign-out sessions.

Hematopathology Tumor Boards and Educational Conferences

Hematopathology attendings and fellows participate in a number of weekly, biweekly multidisciplinary conferences (heme malignancy, Lymphoma, Heme-Onc tumor boards, etc.) with the Hematology/ Oncology division focused on pathology/flow/molecular findings, imaging modalities and treatment considerations.  UAB Hematology/Oncology fellows rotate at Hematopathology sign-out sessions as well. Hematopathology attendings, fellows and residents attend and present cases at daily afternoon department-wide Consultants’ Conference.  In addition, journal clubs are presented by fellows and residents at weekly Laboratory Medicine conferences.
