Description
(Updated: December 12, 2013)
The Department of Pathology has 14 residency positions, typically 3-4 in each of the four years.  The majority of residents are recruited from throughout the United States, and there are usually a few University of Arizona graduates. International Medical Graduates (IMGs) are selected based on the same criteria as U. S.graduates. About one-third to one-fourth of residents are AOA (Alpha Omega Alpha) in medical school. We also offer accredited fellowships in hematopathology and molecular genetics pathology and a fellowship in surgical pathology. These fellows are a valuable source of teaching and assistance to residents. Similarly, three post-sophomore fellows (PSFs) rotate through pathology for a year, chiefly on Anatomic Pathology. These bright and dedicated medical students have completed at least two years of training, including the Pathology course, and function in part as junior residents. They keep the workload manageable and learn and teach along with the residents.

The graduate medical education (GME) programs of Drexel University College of Medicine at Hahnemann University Hospital (HUH) and Saint Peter's University Hospital (SPUH) are truly cooperative arrangements, providing outstanding clinical training. All house staff members (interns, residents and fellows) are employees of the hospital where the program resides. In turn, the hospital provides the College of Medicine the resources to oversee the educational components of graduate medical education. Our GME programs are thus a mutual effort to provide the highest quality education, service delivery, and academic and clinical environments possible. We train house staff to be excellent clinicians who are prepared to pass their boards and provide compassionate care to their patients.

Description
(Updated: February 09, 2012)
The overall goal of the Pathology residency program at the George Washington University Medical Center is to train physicians to become competent and skilled in the practice of pathology (anatomic, clinical, or both). Upon completion of the training program, the resident should be well prepared for subspecialty pathology fellowship training or to assume the role of a practicing pathologist in a general hospital setting, an academic medical center, or a research institute.  The resident should, at a minimum, be able to pass the certifying examination(s) of the American Board of Pathology. The program accomplishes its overall goal by involving the residents in the full breadth and depth of pathology clinical practice in a variety of practice settings; by exposing the residents to basic, applied, translational and/or clinical bio-medical research; and by involving the residents in the teaching of students and other learners in the health care system.  The program is headquartered at the George Washington University Hospital, with the Washington Veterans’ Affairs Medical Center (VAMC) and the Children’s National Medical Center (CNMC) serving as major affiliated institutions.  The program is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).  In addition to the residency program, the department also sponsors fellowship programs in Surgical Pathology and Cytopathology.

Resident education/training and excellence in service are the highest priorities in the department. We seek to balance the resident’s education needs with the requirement to "get the work out" in a timely manner. Both the attending staff and resident pathologists have worked together to achieve this over the last few years. Because of this close interaction, there is an excellent relationship between the attending staff and residents. There is an education retreat once a year for all residents and staff to evaluate the training program and find ways to improve it. We have reworked the curriculum to allow residents to have a full day to review their surgical path cases before sign-out with staff.  All interesting cases are shared with all residents and staff at conference weekly. Residents are encouraged to suggest and implement changes in the program throughout the year. Our Residency Program was inspected by the Pathology Residency Review Committee in February 2008, with no adverse findings, resulting in re-accreditation for another five years (the longest term allowed before re-inspection).

The Miami-Dade County Medical Examiner Department offers a one-year, ACGME-accredited, Forensic Pathology Training Program in association with the adjacent University of Miami Miller School of Medicine.  Board-certified pathologists and a staff of toxicologists, administrators and forensic photographers provide guidance in principles of forensic case solving to four Fellows.  Neuropathology,  Forensic Anthropology, and Forensic Odontology consultants and medical school staff regularly interact with the fellows.  Numerous skeletal cases provide study between visits by the consultant anthropologist.  Crime laboratory and firearms study also occur. Training starts with two weeks of orientation and didactic lectures, followed by a time of graduated responsibility in case solving.  Investigative strength is gained by primary responsibility for scene investigations, which average 35 per year per Fellow, the performance of approximately 200 to 250 autopsies and presentation of cases at the daily case review conferences. Fellows will have testified in court or in deposition by year's end.  Five decades of categorized records provide excellent study materials for research and Board preparation in conjunction with a complete reference library and online services.  At year's end the Fellow should be imbued with skills and logic needed to solve forensic case problems independently. Requirements: Successful completion of an ACGME-accredited, or equivalent, anatomic pathology or anatomic and clinical pathology residency program.  Successful completion of USMLE, steps 1, 2 and 3.

(Updated: March 01, 2012)
The residency program at Penn State University College of Medicine / Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center is designed to train pathologists for independent practice in an academic medical center, community hospital, commercial laboratory, or other type of pathology-focused career.  Anatomic and Clinical Pathology (APCP) and Anatomic Pathology (AP) tracks are offered; descriptions of these programs are provided elsewhere in this website.  Learning occurs through active participation in service-based activities, a comprehensive core curriculum of didactic lectures and slide conferences, numerous interdisciplinary patient care and educational conferences, and experiential learning opportunities in quality improvement and laboratory management. In addition to the rich clinical education provided to residents, opportunities for developing educational and investigative skills are abundant.  Efforts are made to develop residents' formal and informal teaching skills because much of the effectiveness of the pathologist in the academic institution and in the community hospital depends on his or her ability to "teach" other physicians, hospital administrators, and other health-care personnel. Our department’s Pathology Research Award Program provides funding for residents’ research projects and presentations.

Description
(Updated: April 23, 2012)
Hematopathology Fellowship Program:  The Scripps Clinic Hematology program provides a comprehensive training experience in all aspects of Hematopathology. The overarching philosophy of the program is to prepare fellows for tertiary care practice in the absence of sub-specialized hematopathologists. The program emphasizes the microscopic pathology of hematolymphoid disease, mirroring the primary importance of this aspect of Hematopathology in most practice situations. The interpretation and oversight of ancillary methods including cytochemical stains, immunophenotypic studies, both paraffin-based and by flow cytometry, cytogenetic studies and molecular analyses is a second major point of emphasis because of the vital role these analyses play in the interpretation of biopsy specimens. The third major focal point of the program is the pathologist-clinician relationship and the critical nature of information exchange regarding the diagnosis, treatment, and evaluation of the effectiveness of therapy in the management of patients with hematologic disease. In the areas of coagulation medicine and evaluation of hemoglobinopathies, the philosophy of the program is to provide the trainee with sufficient background and practical experience to permit competent assessment of abnormalities in the vast majority of clinical settings with an awareness of when to seek subspecialty assistance in these areas. In addition to these clinical professional activities, the program also ensures that trainees are competent to provide technical and managerial oversight of the clinical hematology laboratory.

Welcome to the University of Hawaii Pathology Residency Program website. Our program offers fully accredited training in anatomic and clinical pathology. The educational format centers on the evaluation of laboratory material from individual patients with emphasis given to clinicopathologic correlation. The case study approach is augmented by providing a comprehensive, well-balanced curriculum using didactics, local and nationally recognized consultants, pathology study sets, on-line resources and reading assignments in relevant texts and journals.

The pathology resident is expected to constantly expand his/her knowledge through extensive reading, frequent case presentations, laboratory bench work and case-based learning. Each resident is given graduated patient care responsibilities according to his/her progress and capabilities, but at every level, adequate supervision by competent faculty is provided. The resident is expected to develop expertise in making decisions and judgments about individual cases, learning to be an effective problem solver and consultant.

Residents at the University of Hawaii Pathology Residency Program are exposed to a broad spectrum of clinical cases not available in other regions of the nation due to the diverse multiethnic society in Hawaii and the Pacific Basin. The training experience is also enhanced by the involvement of multiple types of institutions and practice models, including three major hospitals, private practice, military exposure and HMO.

Description
(Updated: March 25, 2012)
The scientific basis for the practice of medicine is found in the medical specialty of Pathology. Giving up the stethoscope, reflex hammer and other tools used by clinicians, the pathologist uses tools in laboratory medicine to develop insight into patient problems. Pathologists typically practice in hospital and clinical laboratory settings and are consultants to clinicians in a multitude of different specialties. Most clinicians use the laboratory in one fashion or another including laboratory medicine dealing with evaluation of body fluids like blood and cerebrospinal fluid and as well as anatomic pathology dealing with gross and microscopic assessments of cells and tissues removed at biopsy, surgery and autopsy or through scrapings or aspirations.The pathologist is involved not only with patient care but also clinical research and medical education for undergraduates, graduates, physicians and the public. The autopsy provides an unusual opportunity to recognize natural and unnatural human conditions and to evaluate treatment protocols for various diseases. Ultimate quality control for medicine is obtained from the autopsy. Unfortunately, the latter are dwindling. At the University of Louisville Hospital the autopsy rate approaches 40 percent, yet most are done at our affiliated Medical Examiners Office since UofL Hospital is a major trauma center. Health professionals, law enforcement personnel, coroners and society in general interact with clinical pathology in areas such as hematology, clinical chemistry, microbiology, transfusion medicine, flow cytometry, molecular pathology and immunopathology. Molecular techniques are used to understand, confirm and treat many diseases more frequently now and are routinely relied upon in medical research.

(Updated: March 08, 2012)
The four-year anatomic and clinical pathology (AP/CP) training program at the University of Virginia provides residents with an exceptional opportunity to build a solid foundation in the dynamic field of pathology. Residents interact one-on-one with world-renowned faculty who author and edit several of the most widely utilized pathology reference books and journals. The residency program is designed to create pathologists who are prepared to enter clinical practice upon graduation; residents assume primary responsibility for their cases from beginning to end. From grossing specimens to dictating the final diagnosis, residents are involved in nearly every educational aspect of their cases. As residents become more confident in their abilities, they are encouraged to order stains and pre-dictate the final diagnosis. Residents in their final year sign-out frozen section specimens and assist with challenging consult cases from across the country. The majority of our graduates pursue fellowship training, with most eventually entering private practice. Pathology fellowships offered at the University of Virginina include cytopathology, dermatopathology, gynecological pathology, hematopathology, neuropathology, transfusion medicine, and clinical chemistry. For an up-to-date listing on where our previous residents have trained and practiced, please refer to graduate placements.

The program's philosophic objective is to develop a sturdy medical knowledge/skill base and professional attributes that allow a resident/fellow to independently and competently practice pathology with a life-long commitment to continued learning and excellence.   In-depth training is offered in both Anatomic and Clinical Pathology, separately or as a combined program.  Programs are available for new graduates, as well as to those with post-doctoral experience.  Training is offered at three sites: an academic, tertiary care referral center (West Virginia University), a large community hospital (Charleston Area Medical Center), and a Veterans Affairs Hospital (Louis A. Johnson VA Medical Center).  Although the program is geared to produce well-rounded community hospital pathologists, residents are encouraged to explore a career in academic pathology as well.

In the Anatomic Pathology Program, an optimal pathologist-to-resident ratio provides an excellent learning opportunity. Using double-headed microscopes, residents fully participate with their attending pathologist. Active learning, across the full spectrum of disease, is enhanced by regularly scheduled, consultant-conducted slide seminars in pediatric pathology, pulmonary pathology, renal pathology, orthopaedic pathology and dermatopathology. Similar in-house instruction covers neuropathology, cytopathology, Ob/Gyn pathology and routine diagnostic gross and microscopic surgical pathology, as well as autopsy pathology. Pathologists' assistants ensure that residents are not overburdened with service commitments.

Description
(Updated: April 17, 2012)
Residency training in Pathology is provided by the Department of Pathology and the Department of Laboratory Medicine. Working together under a single Program Director, the two departments assure strong training in both Anatomic and Clinical Pathology. The Department of Pathology is comprised of anatomical pathology services, research laboratories, and support services. Some of Pathology's research laboratories are affiliated with programs physically located in the Boyer Center for Molecular Medicine. The Division of Anatomical Pathology (the clinical Division of the Department) provides autopsy, cytology, and surgical pathology services to all hospitals in the Yale New Haven Medical Center, the West Haven campus of the Veterans Administration Healthcare System (VA), Bridgeport Hospital, and to private physician offices. Residents thus are exposed to a very broad range of clinical material, from the common everyday specimens to rare and unusual diseases and neoplasms. The faculty all have subspecialty interests, and residents rotate through the subspecialty systems affording them in-depth exposure and expert training in each area of anatomic pathology. Services that support the department include histology, immunohistochemistry, molecular diagnostics, electron microscopy/advanced imaging, operational informatics, and the report generation unit.The Department of Laboratory Medicine consists of clinical pathology services, research laboratories, and support services. Some of the research laboratories are affiliated with programs physically located in the Anlyan Center. The clinical laboratories include the Blood Bank, Chemistry, Hematology, Immunology and Flow Cytometry, Microbiology, Virology, Molecular Diagnostics, Apheresis and Stem Cell Processing, and Computer and Instrumentation Services.
