The Cytopathology Fellow participates in sign-outs of all cytologic specimens in Anatomic Pathology. The final interpretation of cytologic specimens occurs under the guidance of a staff Cytopathologist.
The Fellow assists Edward G. Bernacki, Jr., M.D., Tomi J. Kuntzman, D.O. and Christopher K. Hysell, M.D. in the performance of superficial fine needle aspirates (FNA) of palpable lesions referred by clinicians. After the Fellow has demonstrated the ability to successfully retrieve diagnostic material from the superficial masses, he/she may cover the FNA Service with supervision by Drs. Bernacki, Kuntzman or Hysell.
