Fellowship Training

All are one-year fellowships that include the opportunity for translational and clinical research to be carried out as part of the clinical training period.

In addition, the department has a specialized basic and translational post-doctoral research training grant program in the broad field of Immunohematology that provides the opportunity to work in the laboratory of a large number of Yale faculty members drawn from our own department, as well as from a number of other basic science and clinical departments in the Medical School (Immunobiology, Genetics, Cell Biology, Pathology, Internal Medicine, Bioengineering and Pharmacology).

The research training program can be taken as a second or subsequent year of training following clinical fellowship training, residency training in AP, CP or AP/CP, or training in another relevant discipline (e.g., Internal Medicine-Hematology). It is not necessary to have carried out one's clinical training at Yale to apply for the research training program.

  • The fellowship is a one year, primarily clinical experience, centered at Yale-New Haven Hospital (YNHH) with a 6-week rotation at the American Red Cross (ARC) Connecticut Region in Farmington, CT and a rotation at the VA Connecticut Healthcare System West Haven Campus (VA CT).
  • Laboratory Medicine is one of the primary departments for the multidisciplinary Yale Clinical Informatics ACGME Fellowships.

  • The Department has a newly established Clinical Chemistry Fellowship for both a COMACC certified program and an ACGME program.

  • The Hematopathology Fellowship training program is designed to provide a comprehensive experience in all aspects of hematopathology including consultative clinical practice, state-of-the-art diagnostic testing, multi-level teaching and an understanding of the principles of biomedical research.
  • The fellowship is a one year program for physicians board certified or eligible in Clinical Pathology or Infectious Diseases that combines clinical, research and teaching responsibilities.  The fellow's primary responsibilities are at Yale-New Haven Hospital, with rotation through a Public Health Laboratory.
  • A one-year, ACGME-accredited clinical program under the auspices of the Departments of Pathology, Laboratory Medicine, Genetics, and Surgery, with a second, optional year in research.

  • The Department of Laboratory Medicine at the Yale School of Medicine offers structured post-doctoral basic research training in the broad field of Immunohematology. This NIH-funded NRSA program is designed to provide the basic science and translational research skills needed for individuals to become successful academic clinician-scientists in this area.

PhD programs

For individuals with an MD degree who may be interested in carrying out research training and simultaneously obtaining a PhD degree, there are also opportunities in the innovative Yale program for physician-scientists in Investigative Medicine. Other "hybrid" clinical and/or research programs are possible to arrange on an individualized basis. More relevant fellowship programs at Yale of interest to pathologists include:
