Yale Hematopathology


The Hematopathology Service specializes in the evaluation of lymph nodes, bone marrow, blood, spleen, and hematolymphoid tissues in other organs. The faculty are board-certified in this specialty, with expertise in both anatomic and clinical pathology aspects of hematopathology. The Hematopathology team renders diagnoses on 3300 primary diagnostic specimens each year and an additional 1000 consultation specimens. As a tertiary referral center, many of these cases are malignant in nature, including but not limited to aggressive and indolent lymphomas, chronic myeloid neoplasms, acute leukemias, and plasma cell neoplasms. Challenging cases are discussed in detail among the expert hematopathologists at the weekly consensus conference. The faculty are involved nationally and internationally in professional societies and organizations to advance their field. The program offers a highly competitive fellowship in Hematopathology to two trainees each year. These are one-year fellowships (joint between anatomic and clinical pathology) that can be extended for approved research.
