The University of Alabama at Birmingham Department of Pathology has openings in the Cytopathology Fellowship Program for 2019-2020 and 2020-2021 academic years. This fellowship provides a one year ACGME-approved fellowship experience in Cytopathology, with rotations entirely at the University of Alabama Hospital, leading to subspecialty certification by the American Board of Pathology.

Fellows actively participate in previewing and signing out all types of Cytopathology cases, perform rapid on-site evaluation and participate in colposcopic biopsy sign out. In addition, fellows will have hands-on experience with ultrasound-guided thyroid FNA.
Opportunities for elective rotation in subspecialty areas of Surgical Pathology are available, making the program flexible and individually tailored. Participation in ongoing clinical studies and translational research is also encouraged, leading to publications and presentations at national meetings.
