Program Description
Our training program is well balanced with abundant exposure to the areas of anatomic and clinical pathology and also allows several months that can be used for elective rotations in research or anatomic and clinical pathology subspecialties. We offer a variety of fellowships and our graduates have been successful in attaining fellowship positions of their choice, whether it be in house or at another institution. Likewise, our graduates have fared very well in finding employment after completing their training. While most of our graduates end up in private practice, a number of graduates have attained academic positions, including several within our department.
The MUSC Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine Division of Research currently includes 19 full time faculty members with primary responsibilities in biomedical research. The division faculty have diverse research interests that generally fall under three broad categories: cancer biology, auditory neurobiology and stem cell biology. A recent University initiative has been the expansion of the Cancer Genomics and Genetic Sciences program in the Hollings Cancer Center received NIH designation (HCC). As a result, the cancer research core group in 2009 the department has grown to fifteen members who together provide outstanding research opportunities in breast, ovarian, lung and has strong neuronal sheath tumor biology and genetics. The neurobiology research footing group consists of four faculty members with involvement research interests centered around defining the molecular and histopathological alterations associated with noise- and drug-induced and age-related hearing loss. A final area of several colleges research that encompasses both the cancer and neuroscience foci is stem cell biology. Research opportunities in this area include exploring the role of stem cells in cancer metastasis and progression and numerous departments across the campusmolecular mechanisms associated with the derivation of various forms of connective tissues from hematopoietic stem cells.
