“I couldn’t be happier to have chosen WashU for residency. Even during a virtual interview, I was impressed with the program’s warmth and focus on resident wellness. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with our fantastic and supportive attendings, co-residents and fellows, pathology assistants, administrators and lab staff. Our residency program may be large but we are a tight-knit group. There are plenty of opportunities for research, whether you’re developing your own project or collaborating with others. Also, St. Louis is a lively city with delicious food, fun events, and an affordable cost of living. I’m confident that my training at WashU will prepare me for whichever practice environment I choose.”

“I chose WashU because it contains a diverse group of faculty and trainees which allows for great cultural exchange. The facilities are incredible; our gross room is very large and contains everything you could ever need, such as two bone saws and a Faxitron. It has been great to work at an institute where surgical pathology was born and interact with world renowned attendings. Working here now, it is easy to see why this is a top tier program. To top things off, our work environment is very collegial, with friendly coworkers and a supportive environment. I will always be glad to have trained here and been part of the family at WashU.

“I couldn’t be happier to be training at WashU, with the immersive opportunities in both anatomic and clinical pathology. There is a strong spirit of collaboration here, driven by a shared sense of curiosity and dedication to patient care. Everyone including faculty, residents, fellows, and staff are enthusiastic in discussing interesting cases across services, supporting each other through difficulties, and enjoying a good laugh throughout the day. Living in St. Louis is also a joy, with the convenience of being able to affordably live so close to the hospital, beautiful parks, and a city full of kind and friendly people.”
