The Department of Pathology & Immunology has long played critical roles in medical student education. Our faculty organized and taught the first year Immunology Course in the legacy curriculum. It also organized and taught the year-long Pathology Course, which anchored much of the second year curriculum. Our commitment and success in these areas was demonstrated by numerous teaching awards. Our faculty now plays key roles in the design, build, and delivery of the new Gateway Curriculum. In particular, it plays leadership roles in Phase 1 Module 2, Defense and Response to Injury, which provides a strong foundation for the subsequent organ-system based modules. The department continues to provide elective clinical rotations for senior medical students.
