Hematopathology In the Department of Pathology

Hematopathology Fellowship

The Stanford Hematopathology Fellowship includes broad experience in the diagnosis of neoplastic and non-neoplastic hematology specimens. Cases are drawn from Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital and Stanford University Hospital, as well as cases submitted in consultation by pathologists and/or oncologists from many parts of the United States and abroad. Fellows gain extensive experience in immunophenotyping of neoplastic hematopathology cases using both flow cytometry and immunohistochemistry, as well as the integrated use of cytogenetic and molecular diagnostic techniques in diagnosis.

The non-neoplastic hematopathology experience includes evaluation of coagulation and red cell disorders. Fellow rotations include the lymph node consultation service, the bone marrow service, molecular genetic and cytogenetics, coagulation and red blood cell special studies, and elective time. Cases are examined individually with a staff of hematopathologists that includes Drs. Yaso Natkunam, Susan Atwater, Dita Gratzinger, Bob Ohgami, Brent Tan, Jason Kurzer and Roger Warnke, and final diagnostic reports are formulated. Other staff involved in fellow training includes Drs. Tena Cherry and Jim Zehnder. A multidisciplinary training approach allows the Fellows to integrate and interpret all aspects of diagnostic testing in hematopathology.

Fellowship Application Form - Deadline for submitting your 2018-2019 application is December 1, 2016.
