Surveys of ABPath diplomates and Hematopathology (HP) fellowship directors assessed current practice and training in HP. The practice of HPhas undergone major changes over time and there was a paucity of data that could provide guidance to HP program directors (for  training), to the ACGME Pathology Residency Review Committee (for accreditation of fellowship programs and program requirements), and to the ABPath for certification in HP. The findings provide objective data for further discussion among the major stakeholders so that training, practice, and board certification in HP can be more closely aligned.
