These are one-year programs that provide an intensive exposure to all the components of the respective subspecialty, while concentrating on the investigative aspects. Clinical responsibilities are kept at a minimum in order to maximize the time devoted to projects carried out under the supervision of the director of that subspecialty. An integral part of the program consists of exposure to the various techniques used in that subspecialty (immunohistochemical, cytogenetic, molecular, etc.) and interaction with other clinical and basic departments working in the field. The basic research work is carried out in one of the laboratories in the Division of Molecular Pathology.
