Program Description

Our residency program provides training in Clinical Pathology (Laboratory Medicine), Anatomic Pathology, or a combination of both. Other combinations are possible, such as Anatomic Pathology and Neuropathology, or Anatomic Pathology and Forensic Pathology. This structure provides graduated responsibility which allows residents to develop and utilize their skills and assume increasing responsibility within each service as they develop the necessary expertise. Advanced residents make independent decisions and perform diagnostic procedures as they demonstrate satisfactory skills. Residents progress through the program with instruction and supervision by the faculty mentors of each rotation and the Program Director.
