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 and performed rapid cytologic sentinel lymph node evaluation and rapid on-site evaluation of fine needle aspiration. The performance of superficial fine needle aspirates (FNA) of palpable lesions and ultrasound guided aspiration is done by radiologists. The fellow will observe, assist, and ultimately performs fine needle aspirates with radiologists.
