Welcome From the Program Directors

New technologies and laboratory tests that provide diagnostic, prognostic and therapeutic information are emerging rapidly and our role as the doctor’s doctor—communicating clearly, educating and providing high quality, cost-effective healthcare consultation—has never been more vital.

The program's mission is to provide an outstanding education in all aspects of pathology, prepare residents to successfully pass the American Board of Pathology exams, support residents in securing fellowships in their chosen subspecialties at prestigious institutions throughout the nation, and enable residents to practice in the setting of their choice, from clinicians providing diagnostic pathology and clinical consultation to academicians enhancing medical knowledge and medical examiners contributing pathology expertise to the public.

We are excited that you are interested in our residency training program and invite you to apply.
