This accredited fellowship program provides one year of advanced training in diagnostic cytopathology. Fellows in this program actively participate in all aspects of cytopathology, including the sign-out of routine gynecologic and non-gynecologic specimens and the procurement and analysis of fine needle aspiration biopsies. The program emphasizes a comprehensive cytologic approach to both superficial and deep-seated FNA diagnosis. There is a wide spectrum of material (approximately 70,000 cases) originating from the six hospitals on the IU School of Medicine—Indianapolis campus. This includes more than 4,100 fine-needle aspiration cases per year, and approximately one-third of these are collected by the cytopathology staff and fellows.
Three fellows are selected each year. Candidates must have completed an AP or AP/CP pathology residency and hold (or be eligible for) a medical license in the State of Indiana. Stipends are commensurate with the year of postgraduate training in pathology. Applications (CV plus three letters of reference) should be submitted (preferably by email) by June 30 of the year prior to the intended fellowship to Harvey Cramer, MD at email@example.com.
