This accredited fellowship program provides one year of advanced training in diagnostic cytopathology. The trainee will 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 (university, county, pediatric, tertiary adult, community) comprising our medical center. 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.
