Rodolfo Henrich Lobo, M.D.
Our ACGME-accredited one-year fellowship offers broad and comprehensive experience in the diagnosis of benign and malignant hematolymphoid disorders. Within UAMS, we primarily serve the Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute and the UAMS Myeloma Center. The Myeloma Center is a world-renowned leader in the diagnosis and management of plasma cell neoplasms, lymphoplasmacytic lymphoma, and Castleman disease. As the only institution providing allogeneic stem cell transplantation in the state, we serve as a large referral institution to outside hospitals all around Arkansas. UAMS is also affiliated with Arkansas Children’s Hospital and the Central Arkansas Veterans Healthcare System, through which the fellow also rotates.
The division of hematopathology evaluates greater than a combined 6,000 bone marrow and lymph node specimens every year. The fellowship offers in-depth experience in:
- Morphologic evaluation of lymphoid and other soft tissues, bone marrow biopsies and aspirates
- Surface and cytoplasmic phenotyping by flow cytometry and immunohistochemical techniques
- Molecular pathology
- Hemoglobin electrophoresis
- Pediatric hematopathology
Ample opportunity exists for the fellow to participate in a research project.
