Cytopathology Fellowship Program

The Cytopathology Department at the University of Vermont College of Medicine and UVM Medical Center in Burlington was one of the original four US departments designated as a Center of Excellence by the American Society of Cytopathology.

The Fellowship program commenced in 1995, and has graduated annual Fellows, all of whom have obtained their Boards in Cytopathology, and continue to use Cytopathology on an ongoing and active basis in their academic or private practices.

The year-long program aims to mold the general pathology graduate into an informed, capable, experienced and confident cytopathologist, cognizant of both the advantages and pitfalls of cytodiagnosis, and equipped to provide specialist advice and services to ensure patients of optimum cytodiagnosis.

Fellowship training offers a blend of academic and practical training in the setting of a university health care center, with a large geographic referral area. The center receives the full range of specimen types available for cytodiagnosis, and offers Fellows comprehensive forums for teaching, discussion, clinico-pathologic presentation, and research. Fellows participate actively in the busy academic programs of the Cytopathology and Surgical Pathology divisions.

UVM Medical Center/UVM welcomes potential Fellows wishing to avail themselves of the ample opportunities of a new and vigorous program in an established medical center with a strong tradition of excellence in teaching, diagnosis, and research.
