Hematology/Hematopathology involves the diagnosis of blood, bone marrow and lymphatic conditions such as lymphomas, leukemias, myelodysplasia, myeloproliferative disorders, anemia and immunodeficiency related conditions. Our program includes faculty and staff with expertise in both anatomic and clinical pathology. Our consultation service includes evaluation of blood, bone marrow, lymph nodes, and hematolymphoid lesions in other body sites that are submitted by pathologists and oncologists within the US and worldwide. We offer 2 one-year hematopathology fellowships.
