Program Details

Program Description
The Department of Pathology, Microbiology and Immunology at the University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC) offers a one year hematopathology fellowship with the option of a second year designed to train academically-oriented physicians in all aspects of hematology and hematopathology. Only trainees who are board eligible or certified in both anatomic and clinical pathology are accepted into the program. The fellowship is directed and coordinated by Dr. Joseph Khoury and by the associate director, Dr. Neha Gupta.  The program includes all current aspects of clinical and laboratory hematology, with emphasis on the development of a basic understanding of hematologic disorders and the appropriate application and utilization of laboratory procedures and methods in the diagnosis of these disorders. The program is coordinated with a busy hematology and oncology service, and includes active participation in regularly-scheduled clinical and laboratory teaching conferences. Our goal is to train fellows with excellent interpretive skills, and consultative and managerial abilities in laboratory hematology. Investigative research, either clinical or basic, is required during the fellowship. Fellows are expected to present their research at national meetings and publish original papers in peer-reviewed journals during the fellowship period.

This program is Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education(ACGME) accredited.
