Clinical Pathology Rotations


Transfusion Medicine and Coagulation (Core Rotation)

Residents on the core Transfusion Medicine and Coagulation rotation at Emory University Hospital participate in the management of the EUH blood bank and handle daytime transfusion calls from many locations within the Emory health system. Additional responsibilities include managing the therapeutic apheresis unit and formal interpretation of special coagulation testing results.

Clinical Chemistry (Core Rotation)

Residents on the core Clinical Chemistry rotation at Emory University Hospital and Grady Memorial Hospital serve as laboratory consultants for clinicians and technicians, participate in one-on-one didactic sessions with Chemistry faculty, and perform active bench rotations.

Microbiology (Core Rotation)

Residents on the core Medical Microbiology rotation at Emory University Hospital and Grady Memorial Hospital field calls from clinicians and technicians, participate in daily laboratory rounds with clinicians and clinical pathologists, and perform active bench rotations. Joint CDC faculty teaching didactics and weekly case presentations also contribute to a unique microbiology experience.

Hematopathology (Core Rotation)

Residents on the core Hematopathology rotation at Emory University Hospital participate in analysis of morphologic preparations, flow cytometric immunophenotyping, molecular testing, and cytogenetic findings from patients in Emory’s active hematology-oncology and bone marrow transplant services.

Molecular Diagnostics

Residents in the molecular diagnostics laboratory at Emory University Hospital receive in-depth training in the molecular aspects of microbiology, hematopathology, and solid tumors. The molecular diagnostics laboratory is a high-volume, state of the art lab offering routine molecular testing as well as next generation sequencing and genomic assays.

Additional upper level rotationsinclude a dedicated laboratory administration rotation, general CP at the Atlanta VAMC, Informatics, HLA laboratory, immunology, flow cytometry, and upper-level versions of any of the core laboratory rotations.
