The Anatomic Pathology-only (AP-only) residency track provides a three-year training experience. The first two years of training typically offer “core” AP requirements combined with research and elective time. The third year of training emphasizes flexibility, allowing the resident to further explore their specific interests through targeted electives. This track is well-suited for the trainee who is planning a career in academic pathology, with an emphasis on anatomic pathology. It may be combined with a fellowship and research experience under the Pathology Physician Scientist Training Program (PSTP). For more information regarding the anatomic pathology curriculum see the details in the AP/CP track section.
