About the Fellowship

The Haematopathology programs seeks to train individuals who will become leaders in the field of haematopathology.
Leadership can involve generation of new knowledge in the form of basic or clinical research, dissemination of knowledge through teaching of medical students, trainees, or practitioners of either pathology or clinical medicine, and the provision of high-quality, state-of-the-art patient care. The philosophy of post-graduate Pathology trainings are mostly based on the premise that trainees learn best by being exposed to a wide variety and large volume of clinical material and by having a level of responsibility appropriate to their level of experience.

The training involves consistent exposure to and responsibility for clinical specimens, with supervision and backup from faculty. The trainee’s involvement with challenging consultation cases from pathologists around the world gives him/her insight into some of the most difficult issues in haematopathology diagnosis as well as the role academic institutions play in making their expertise available to other institutions within the health care delivery system. Communication with clinical colleagues in the course of patient care is an important part of this experience. Fellows are given enough responsibility to test their knowledge and decision-making capacities. Every case and every decision are reviewed by a senior pathologist, who corrects and gives feedback on the fellow’s judgments and performance. In this way, the fellow’s communication skills and overall professional development are enhanced.

Fellows must also learn to critically evaluate the literature, practice evidence-based medicine, and present laboratory and other data at conferences; these activities are incorporated into the daily responsibilities of the trainees. Fellows are expected to design and carry out at least one independent clinical, translational, or basic research project, thereby teaching them the use of scientific evidence and application of research methods to advance the haematopathology field.

So, if you have fellowship vacancies in your hospital, you can post them here, so that many European doctors in training who are members of the Young EA4HP may be interested in the possibilities that training in your hospital offers.
