The Beaumont Hematopathology Fellowship includes on-site dedicated rotations that provide the fellows with immersive experiences in all the major aspects of Hematopathology that are incorporated into comprehensive Hematopathology practice. Rotations include:
- Bone marrow/peripheral blood review (4 months)
- Lymph node/Flow cytometry (4 months)
- Molecular/Cytogenetics (1 month)
- Coagulation/Hemoglobin Electrophoresis (1 month)
- Research (1 month)
- Elective (1 month)
Patient care responsibility is graduated, with the level of supervision and support available tailored to the individual fellow’s needs, but also providing for independent assessment and decision making. The research month is typically assigned early in the fellowship, to allow focused time to initiate scholarly activity that can be carried on throughout the year.
Laboratory management is interwoven throughout the curriculum and includes formal laboratory management lectures, as well as participation in laboratory management activities such as participation in laboratory meetings, review of CAP proficiency, participation in CAP mock inspections and presenting data at the departmental quality reports meeting.
Less traditional, but relevant topics such as cultural competency and health care disparities are also addressed through formal lecture or with projects.
The fellows also play an active role in both resident and medical student teaching and mentoring, as well as serving in a central role in the preparation and presentation of tumor board, and case conferences.
