The fundamental goal of the residency program in pathology is to provide a superior training experience in all the disciplines encompassing pathology. The program is designed to provide comprehensive training for those residents pursuing the combined anatomic clinical pathology program. The physicians graduating our program will be able to obtain fellowship training or achieve certification in anatomic and/or clinical pathology, and practice as a junior staff member. In addition, all residents are encouraged to explore avenues of research that are of interest to them, as well as areas of special competency, in which members of our faculty may act as mentors. Pursuit of an academic career is encouraged for those residents with such aspirations and abilities. The program strives to provide the opportunity and flexibility to meet the unique goals of each resident. Under special circumstances, training exclusively in anatomic or clinical pathology may be offered. Residents in those tracks may be asked to assume responsibility in the other discipline, i.e., either AP or CP.
