Hematopathology Fellowship Program

The Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at the University of Vermont Medical Center offers a one-year ACGME-accredited hematopathology fellowship. The program provides comprehensive training with broad exposure to the evaluation of bone marrow, peripheral blood, and lymph node morphology; the interpretation of flow cytometry, coagulation, and molecular studies; and the synthesis of available data into integrated reports. A close professional relationship with the clinical hematology service allows the opportunity to develop skill as a clinical consultant, and participation in clinicopathologic conferences is an integral part of the fellowship. Time is allotted to participate in a clinical research project with the potential for abstract submission to a national meeting and subsequent publication. Participation in resident training and medical student teaching in hematopathology is expected.

The fellowship faculty are enthusiastic about teaching and very supportive of housestaff. The fellow will experience frequent one-on-one and individualized learning experiences from the faculty during the year.

The goal of the fellowship is to produce trainees with a broad knowledge of hematologic disorders and their associated laboratory testing strategies. Program graduates will be capable of enormous success in either academic or community based careers.

The University of Vermont Medical Center 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.

Requirements: Board certification or eligibility in anatomic and clinical pathology (AP/CP). Eligibility for a Vermont medical license is required.

Stipends: Commensurate with the level of training; current information is available on the University of Vermont Medical Center's GME website.

Faculty and Staff: Joanna Conant, M.D.; Katherine Devitt, M.D.; Juli-Anne Gardner, M.D.; Andrew Goodwin, M.D.; Ashley Volaric, M.D.; Amy J. Bourgeois, M.Ed. (Program Administrator)
