The Hematopathology Fellowship Program in the Department of Clinical Pathology is located on the Beaumont, Royal Oak MI campus where clinical pathology occupies more than 50,000 square feet and performs over 16,000,000 in house procedures yearly. Clinical Pathology is staffed by 12 pathologists (including 7 board certified hematopathologists) and 8 PhDs. The main laboratories that are incorporated into the Hematopathology fellowship include:
- Hematology/Coagulation Laboratory- performs over 1,000,000 tests, including >1000 bone marrows, >8000 peripheral consultations and smear/fluid reviews, and ~1200 coagulation consultations
- Flow Cytometry Laboratory-performs 6000 tests/year, including almost 5000 panels requiring pathologist interpretation
- Cytogenetics Laboratory-performs ~5000 test/year including FISH and SNP array
- Molecular Diagnostics- Gene rearrangement, next generation testing
The fellows will not only obtain practical experience in laboratory testing, trouble shooting and test interpretation, but also participate in varying aspects of laboratory management and quality control within these laboratories.
The learning environment in the Hematopathology Fellowship is one that encourages questions, collaboration and independent thinking. The curriculum is supported by a diverse faculty and resident body where an open-door policy is the rule, not the exception. Beaumont is committed to the health and wellness of all residents and fellows. Our Director of Physician Wellness works with residents and fellows to address their needs for continued well-being, support, education, resource development and preventative programming.
