The ACGME-accredited Hematopathology Fellowship Program at Roswell Park provides fellows with an immersive training experience in all aspects of diagnostic hematopathology. Fellows will be working in very active clinical and consultation services with sub-specialized hematopathologists dedicated to education. Supporting a busy hematology/oncology service in Upstate New York’s only National Cancer Institute (NCI)-designated comprehensive cancer center, fellows will quickly develop critical skills necessary for careers in academia or community practice.

Fellows will practice integrated diagnosis by incorporating flow cytometric, cytogenetic, and molecular results with morphologic findings. The fellows will also participate in various clinical and educational activities, including consensus conferences, tumor boards, journal clubs, didactic lectures, educational conferences, and research projects. We foster a supportive environment deeply committed to diversity and inclusion.

Stipends are commensurate with a postgraduate year of training. Fellows also receive funds for educational resources and professional development.
