Cytopathology Fellowship

The Cytopathology Service of the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) in Charleston offers three ACGME accredited positions for a one-year program of subspecialty training in Cytopathology. The Cytopathology Service at MUSC annually examines 18,000 gynecologic and 6,500 non-gynecologic specimens, including over 3,000 fine needle aspiration specimens. Ninety-nine percent of gynecological and exfoliative specimens are processed through liquid-based technology (ThinPrep). Immunocytochemical, ultrastructural, and flow cytometric analysis is available for pertinent cases. On-site adequacy assessments are performed in both conventional method and via Telecytopathology. The fellowship offers in-depth exposure to Cytopathology with emphasis on clinical and histologic correlation. The fellows will actively participate in inter/intradepartmental conferences and are encouraged to participate in research projects related to cytologic diagnosis. Successful completion of the Fellowship training qualifies the candidate for special certification examination of the American Board of Pathology.
Candidates must have completed an ACGME accredited AP or AP/CP residency and are eligible to hold a medical license in South Carolina. Applications should be received by January 1st of the year preceding the year of the fellowship (18 months prior to the beginning of the fellowship).
Salary is at PGY 5 level
