The department offers ACGME-accredited clinical fellowship training in four major areas of Laboratory Medicine:
- Blood Banking and Transfusion Medicine
- Molecular Genetic Pathology
All are one-year fellowships that include the opportunity for translational and clinical research to be carried out as part of the clinical training period.
In addition, the department has a specialized basic and translational post-doctoral research training grant program in the broad field of Immunohematology that provides the opportunity to work in the laboratory of a large number of Yale faculty members drawn from our own department, as well as from a number of other basic science and clinical departments in the Medical School (Immunobiology, Genetics, Cell Biology, Pathology, Internal Medicine, Bioengineering and Pharmacology).
The research training program can be taken as a second or subsequent year of training following clinical fellowship training, residency training in AP, CP or AP/CP, or training in another relevant discipline (e.g., Internal Medicine-Hematology). It is not necessary to have carried out one's clinical training at Yale to apply for the research training program.
For individuals with an MD degree who may be interested in carrying out research training and simultaneously obtaining a PhD degree, there are also opportunities in the innovative Yale program for physician-scientists in Investigative Medicine. Other "hybrid" clinical and/or research programs are possible to arrange on an individualized basis. More relevant fellowship programs at Yale of interest to pathologists include:
