The University of Chicago offers a one-year fellowship that provides comprehensive training in all aspects of diagnostic cytopathology, including traditional morphologic analysis, advanced diagnostic techniques such as flow cytometry, immunocytochemistry, and molecular diagnostics, laboratory management and quality assurance. The University of Chicago is renowned for its oncology services that include a full range of cancer-related clinical and research programs. The hospitals and clinic, and the pathology department are fully computerized, facilitating data retrieval for diagnosis and research. The section of cytopathology currently processes about 19,000 Pap smears, of which 16% are abnormal, and 4,700 non-gynecologic specimens, including a growing fine needle aspiration biopsy service (currently 1750 biopsies). The fellow will gain experience in performance and interpretation of FNA biopsies, and actively participates in conferences, teaching, research, and quality improvement activities.
A minimum of three years' training in anatomic pathology or four years' training that combines anatomic and clinical pathology. The candidate must be able to obtain an Illinois medical license.
