The Department of Pathology Residency Program -
Outstanding Research and Excellence in Clinical Practice

The Department of Pathology offers a comprehensive training program in all aspects of pathology, with the primary goal of training residents for careers in academic and hospital pathology. Subspecialty training is emphasized in a department that provides a broad and enriching environment for such study. Residents can choose programs in anatomic pathology (AP), clinical pathology (CP), or a combined AP/CP program.

The combined program requires 4 years of training and includes an 18-month core program in anatomic and clinical pathology. The remainder of time is distributed among a variety of mandatory rotations and voluntary electives.

A residency in either anatomic or clinical pathology requires four years to be eligible for certification by the American Board of Pathology; within these four years, two formal years of AP or CP training are required. The department recommends that additional time be used to pursue subspecialty training in a specific aspect of pathology or an area of research interest. The residency director will work with each resident to design a training program tailored for the individual.
