Cytopathology Fellowship

Cytopathology Fellowship

Duke offers a one-year ACGME accredited fellowship with extensive training in FNA and exfoliative cytology.

Our Cytopathology fellowship is a fast-paced program that welcomes two fellows to the team annually.  Fellows become proficient at rapid on-site immediate assessment of image-guided procedures, performing FNA, diagnostic interpretation of FNA and exfoliative cytology specimens, patient safety, quality improvement, and lab management.  Our division has a beautiful FNA clinic in the Duke Cancer Center where fellows learn to perform palpable and ultrasound-guided FNA biopsies.  Fellows function on interprofessional teams and have ample opportunity for teaching both within and outside of the Pathology Department. Participation in national scientific meetings and clinical research projects is encouraged and supported. The Division of Cytopathology accessions over 24,000 gynecologic cases, 5,000 non-gynecologic cases, and 3,300 fine needle aspiration cases annually.
