(Two - 1 year positions with an optional 2nd year track)
Description: This training program is designed to train academically-oriented physicians to be subspecialists in the area of hematopathology. Our program is structured to give fellows clearly-defined and graduated responsibilities, and delegated authority. The two year program consists of one accredited year of structure learning, followed by a second year of additional specialization, including electives and research opportunities, and clinical responsibility. In the second year, the fellow may also elect to participate in basic research in the area of lymphomagenesis and eligible fellows are granted independent sign-out responsibilities commensurate with their demonstrated expertise. A large number of community-based cases are reviewed as part of the Nebraska Leukemia/Lymphoma Study Group Network. The Medical Center also has an active hematology/oncology service and hematopoietic stem cell transplantation program. A full range of morphologic, histochemical, immunologic, cytogenetic, and molecular biologic techniques are performed as diagnostic and investigative tools. This program is approved by the American Board of Pathology (ABP) for subspecialty training in Hematology.
Requirements: Board eligible or certified in both anatomic and clinical pathology.
Application: Applications will be evaluated on an on-going basis and will be accepted until the position is filled.

The application package includes a CAP standardized application form, curriculum vitae, a personal statement, United States Medical Licensing Examination results (parts 1, 2, and 3), ECFMG certification, Medical School diploma, Medical School Transcript, Deans letter, and three letters of recommendation. The personal statement should include a brief overview of the applicant's interests, related prior experiences, and long-term career goals. The three letters of recommendation should include one letter from the applicant's current program director, and two from other physicians who know the applicant well, preferably one hematopathologist.
