Hematopathology Fellowship

Our program emphasizes the practical aspects of hematopathology, including morphologic skills, laboratory management and clinical consultation.

The Texas A&M Health Science Center College of Medicine - Scott & White Hematopathology Fellowship in Temple, TX, is a one-year program and is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).

Our program is designed to prepare fellows to qualify and successfully complete the American Board of Pathology Hematopathology subspecialty board certification examination.

We accept one fellow per year.


We have structured our education program based on the concept of combining theoretical knowledge, practical knowledge and skills and direct involvement with medical decision making.

We also believe repetition is important in the learning process and have structured the training experience to allow the trainee within a year to repeat key rotations in order to reinforce practical knowledge and the medical decision-making ability.

Fellows are encouraged to attend scientific meetings sponsored by the College of American Pathologists, as well as the American Society of Hematology and/or any other pertinent society.

Fellows will spend all of their training time in Temple, TX.

Rotations, teaching conferences and increasing levels of responsibility are structured to allow for gradual learning and for continuous reinforcement of concepts and skills. The divisions of adult and pediatric hematology/oncology within Baylor Scott & White are active participants and a component of our fellowship.

Rotations include:

  • Hematology/oncology
  • Hematology laboratory
  • Surgical pathology
  • Cytogenetics
  • Special coagulation
  • Flow cytometry
  • Anticoagulation clinic
  • Molecular pathology
  • Outpatient, pediatric hematology/oncology clinic
  • Bone marrow biopsy service
  • Any others required and/or tailored to the trainees’ interests

Although not required, research is strongly encouraged. Experienced senior staff members are always available to mentor the fellow research projects. Many projects are presented at state and national meetings. Fellows are encouraged, whenever appropriate, to submit full manuscripts for publication consideration.

Baylor Scott & White Health has a long history of supporting education and research via its research and education division, which provides administrative and clerical support to aid in preparation of manuscripts and presentations.
