LGM – Training

Our mission is to train the next generation of leaders in Academic Clinical Pathology through:

  • Excellence in Education
  • Excellence in Clinical Care
  • Excellence in Basic Science and
  • Translational Research

The residency and fellowship training programs in the Division of Laboratory and Genomic Medicine at Washington University integrate strong clinical training with basic science or translational research training. These programs are appropriate for trainees with MD degrees, MD/PhD degrees, and for some programs, PhD degrees.

The underlying goal of all of our training programs is to provide the best training for our trainees who we see as the next generation of leaders in academic clinical pathology. To do so, we have designed all of our programs to have the maximum amount of flexibility in clinical and research training so that they can accommodate the very diverse career goals of our trainees. In addition, in some cases we can combine fellowships to allow trainees to become experts in more than one area of clinical pathology.

All training programs have research components with trainees taking advantage of research opportunities with mentors throughout Washington University School of Medicine and the Washington University main campus.

We invite you to learn more about our Clinical Pathology residency program and our fellowship training programs.
