Hematopathology Fellowship


The Hematopathology Fellowship training program is designed to provide a comprehensive experience in all aspects of hematopathology including consultative clinical practice, state-of-the-art diagnostic testing, multi-level teaching and an understanding of the principles of biomedical research.

Hematopathology Fellowship

The fellowship is filled for academic years 2015-2016, 

2016-2017 and 2017-2018

 but applications are now being considered for 2018-2019 and beyond.

Although we participate in the Society for Hematopathology guidelines for fellowship application submission (applications are accepted until December 1, 19 months in advance of the start date, e.g., December 1, 2016 for the 2018-2019 fellowship, interviews starting that December and decisions announced in February and beyond), we also recognize that it may be more convenient to interview earlier and remain open to inquiries at any time.

We also encourage those interested in our program to appraise us of that interest up to several years in advance, especially for those who may be oriented toward the physician-scientist track, since this requires coordination with research programs in individual laboratories.

Physician-Scientist Training

For individuals with an interest in a longer term commitment to research work and to a physician-scientist career path, there is opportunity to have an extended research experience in the laboratory of faculty from the departments of laboratory medicine and pathology but also in the laboratories of any other Yale University Faculty as part of the fellowship.

A two- to four-year program of combined clinical training and research training in hematopathology and immunohematology is available as outlined earlier. For more information on some of the mentors that participate in this program and some of the opportunities available, please see the section on Research Fellowships for more details.


Stipends are commensurate with the fellow's years of post-graduate training on the same scale as that received by Yale-New Haven Hospital resident staff and also include family-plan-level health insurance and individual disability insurance benefits.

Funds are also provided for educational materials ("book allowance"). Details of the current stipend scale are provided upon application.

Past Fellows

Past fellows in the program have gone on to research and clinical academic positions at major institutions. Of our last five graduates of the program, two are in community practice and three are in academic physician-scientist practice, one an Assistant, one an Associate and one a full Professor of Pathology.
