    Guys,

    Which are the programs that lead from AP to Hemepath fellowships? I know it's typically a CP-oriented fellowship, but I heard mention of some AP routes to heme. Anybody know?

    Stanford has a combined AP/Heme program. Otherwise, I don't think its a big deal doing AP only and then Heme since it overlaps with AP in a lot of places.

    I would wager there are far more academic heme path people that were AP only as residents then were CP only. I doubt any program would refuse an AP only resident into their fellowship. You aren't selling yourself short at all if you do AP only if you want to do heme.

    In the northeast, it is an AP oriented field, from what I can gather from being in med school and PSF there.

    I think you are hurting yourself by being AP only heme. A quick scan shows that JHU and UPenn both prefer AP/CP. Utah and UVA require AP/CP. http://www.pathologytraining.org/
    Heme is a kind of weird field in that both AP and CP are involved. The might be more AP heme than CP heme people, but definitely more AP/CP/HP people.

    If you wanted to stay in academics and sign out AP and Heme, why would it matter if you are AP and CP boarded? Sure, there are rotations in CP that would definitely be applicable to your Heme fellowship (molecular/cytogenetics, immuno/flow), but I don't see why you couldn't do these rotations as electives (I'm making the assumption that these rotations are under the umbrella of "CP" at most institutions). I guess ultimately it depends on what type of fellow the program wants to train (ie community vs academia-bound).

    Hey don't ask me. I just pointed out the programs that want AP/CP.
