The Department of Pathology & Immunology offers a one-year, ACGME accredited program in cytopathology with a robust and broad clinical cytopathology practice.

History

The cytopathology fellowship has received initial accreditation by the American Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) on December 2, 1996. 

Curriculum

The fellow participates in a diverse  fine needle aspiration biopsy service and is actively involved in providing on-site evaluation and superficial biopsies. There is a mixture of gynecological and non-gynecological cytopathology, reflecting a large academic medical center practice. The application of routine and emerging ancillary testing is integrated into the practice. Dedicated time focused on laboratory management, specimen processing skills and research are provided.

Facilities

Training for the fellowship occurs in state-of-the-art facilities at Washington University School of Medicine/Barnes-Jewish Hospital. The cytopathology section is located in the 680,000 square-foot BJC Institute of Health (BJCIH) at Washington University School of Medicine, which is an 11-story research building housing laboratories and support facilities and is Washington University’s largest building.

The anatomic pathology clinical laboratories and offices are located on one floor. This close proximity makes it convenient and easy to interact with the laboratory, anatomic pathology faculty, residents and staff.
