Hematopathology Fellowship, Royal Oak


Participation in clinical or basic science research is a requirement of the fellowship. A wide variety of hematopathology research opportunities are available particularly in the areas of molecular diagnostics, flow cytometry and cytogenetics. All fellows are required to submit an abstract to the annual Resident and Fellow Research Forum competition hosted by Beaumont's Research Institute. Presentation of research at regional and national conferences is recommended. Elective time for research is an integral part of the program.
