Hematopathology Fellowship

We have an active hematopathology service with approximately 2,000 bone marrow examinations and 1,000 lymphoma evaluations per year.

The Hematopathology Fellowship at Baylor University Medical Center, part of Baylor Scott & White Health, is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).

The emphasis of our one-year program is on diagnostic hematopathology and laboratory hematology.

We accept one fellow each year.
