Flow Cytometry

The Lymph Nodes, Bone Marrows, and Flow Cytometry (LN/BM/Flow) rotation at West Virginia University is designed to instruct trainees in LN/BM/Flow in a tertiary care, academic setting as well as a large community hospital. As they evaluate patient specimens, physicians in training are instructed in acquisition and evaluation of blood marrow aspirates and smears, lymph node evaluation in neoplastic hematology and interpretation of flow cytometry. By providing residents with increasing responsibilities and duties, as their level of training increases, the teaching faculty hope to instill in the resident the skills and tools necessary to develop a life-long course of continued professional development.
