The Clinical Pathology-only (CP-only) residency track provides a three-year training experience. The first year and a half of training is dedicated to the “core” components of clinical pathology. After this, training time will be devoted to subspecialty training in one of the areas of laboratory medicine. Throughout training, residents experience all aspects of clinical pathology and develop both the medical and technical expertise for analyzing laboratory-related challenges. This track is well-suited for the trainee who is planning a career in the academic setting with an emphasis on clinical pathology. It may be combined with a fellowship and research experience under the Pathology Physician Scientist Training Program (PSTP).  For more information regarding the clinical pathology curriculum see the details in the AP/CP track section.
