Program Description

The NIH National Cancer Institute (NCI) Laboratory of Pathology offers a multifaceted ACGME-accredited residency training program in Anatomic Pathology at the NIH Clinical Center (CC). The CC is the site of intramural clinical research for the NIH, and home to more than 1500 clinical research protocols. Excelling in both clinical diagnosis and translational research, the department provides a stimulating intellectual environment for the resident interested in an academic career. The department emphasizes excellence in diagnosis and the use of modern technological tools to enhance accuracy and decipher disease mechanisms. In addition, LP staff members receive a large number of cases in consultation each year, resulting in a rich and diversified exposure to the practice of anatomic pathology. Qualified candidates must have completed an M.D. degree from an approved U.S. or Canadian medical school, or must hold an E.C.F.M.G. certificate. Most successful applicants have had prior research experience, or have a Ph.D. degree. Clinical training in the Anatomic Pathology Program includes three years of rotations and subspecialty training. An optional fourth year of training may be available to selected residents during which time they may participate in additional research activities.
