About the Cytopathology fellowship program

Our 1-year fellowship in cytopathology offers advanced training with emphasis on FNA biopsy and the selective application of ancillary techniques.

Fellows receive increasing levels of responsibility commensurate with level of performance. Emphasis also is placed on the integration of surgical pathology with cytology and the use of both air-dried Diff-Quik and alcohol-fixed Papanicolaou stains, as well as liquid-based monolayer preparations.

Fellows participate in the service, teaching, and research activities of the cytology division. With more than 1,000 FNA biopsies at Allegheny General Hospital annually, fellows assist and perform these biopsies and review all consultation cases. Fellows can participate in ongoing conferences, teaching and clinical research projects, as well as national teaching and workshops given by the cytology faculty.
