Although there are no established elective rotations, it is possible to arrange electives in areas of particular interest to individual fellows which have applicability to the practice of cytopathology. Areas which might be considered for elective could include flow cytometry, molecular pathology, cytogenetics, and subspecialty areas of surgical pathology. Development of a elective would include input from the fellow, program director and elective faculty to ensure the elective meets the needs of the fellow, is applicable to cytopathology practice and has clear, achievable goals and objectives.
