Laboratory of Pathology Training and Fellowship Programs

Anatomic Pathology Residency Training Program


The Laboratory of Pathology (LP) offers a multifaceted ACGME-accredited residency training program in Anatomic Pathology at the NIH Clinical Center. The Clinical Center is the site of intramural clinical research for the NIH, and home to more than 1500 clinical research protocols. Excelling in both clinical diagnosis and translational research, the department provides a stimulating intellectual environment for the resident interested in an academic career. The department emphasizes excellence in diagnosis and the use of modern technological tools to enhance accuracy and decipher disease mechanisms. In addition, LP staff members receive a large number of cases in consultation each year, resulting in a rich and diversified exposure to the practice of anatomic pathology. Most successful applicants have had prior research experience, or have a Ph.D. degree. Clinical training in the Anatomic Pathology Program includes three years of rotations and subspecialty training. An optional fourth year of training may be available to selected residents during which time they may participate in additional research activities. Read more...

Cytopathology Fellowship


The Cytopathology Section of the National Cancer Institute provides diagnostic cytopathology services to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and its associated clinical services in the NIH Clinical Center, a 240-bed and 82 day-hospital stations research hospital. The relatively high frequency of pathologic findings combined with the diversity of types of exfoliative and fine needle aspiration (FNA) specimens seen in our Section provide a broad experience in diagnostic cytopathology. The goals of the fellowship are to develop a strong foundation in diagnostic cytopathology and introduce clinically oriented physicians to current research techniques. Read more...

Hematopathology Fellowship


The Hematopathology Section of the Laboratory of Pathology, National Cancer Institute, offers a fully ACGME-accredited fellowship in hematopathology, which provides broad exposure to the diagnostic and investigative aspects of neoplastic hematopathology. Material is derived principally from an active in-house treatment program for both adult and pediatric hematologic malignancies. In addition, approximately over 2000 challenging cases are submitted in consultation each year. The Hematopathology Section collaborates with the Clinical Services of the NCI, NHLBI, and NIAID in both clinical management and research. Read more...
