Pathology is one of the most diverse specialties in medicine. It incorporates a number of highly individualized and seemingly separate disciplines. The Department of Pathology & Immunology and its supportive faculty provide outstanding training opportunities to prepare post-graduate, graduate and undergraduate trainees for any career they wish to pursue.
Offering the latest technologies, the department’s residency training is geared towards physicians looking to specialize in anatomic pathology (AP), clinical pathology (CP), laboratory medicine or combine their training in anatomic and clinical pathology (AP/CP). Residents also have a variety of leadership, teaching and mentoring opportunities during their time here.
The department also provides fully accredited one- and two-year fellowship training programs in diverse clinical subspecialties ranging from surgical and dermatopathology to pediatric and neuropathology. Our fellowships are designed to prepare residency graduates for roles as clinical specialists and/or laboratory directors.
The departments’ Physician Scientist Training Program focuses on providing support, mentorship and research experience through the clinical and postdoctoral training years, culminating in a trainee who is highly competitive for tenure-track academic positions in clinical and anatomic pathology. The department supports PSTP trainees for up to three years after completion of residency to dedicate entirely to research training.
We provide exceptional basic, translational and clinical research opportunities for graduate students and post-doctoral fellows. The department is the center for the immunology program within the Division of Biology and Biomedical Sciences. Graduate students may pursue research with any department faculty member, and we encourage interdepartmental interactions.
