Pathology Residency Program Overview
The University Hospitals Anatomic and Clinical Pathology Residency Program, in collaboration with Case Western Reserve University, offers rigorous balanced training in anatomic and clinical pathology within a large thriving academic medical center. The faculty members of the department are enthusiastic teachers committed to postgraduate pathology education. The goal of our program is to provide a supportive and congenial atmosphere in which our residents can develop to their full potential and find their niche in the diverse field of pathology.
The curriculum for residents pursuing the combined anatomic and clinical pathology training program has the first year dedicated to anatomic pathology and the second year dedicated to clinical pathology. The training is integrated in the third and fourth years, which consist of rotations of four-week blocks in anatomic or clinical pathology and elective time.
The Goals of our Program include:
- Exposing pathology residents to a wide variety of cases with subspecialty expertise in clinical, anatomic, and molecular pathology.
- Fostering pathology resident education to prepare for subspecialty fellowship training and a successful career in the field.
- Training leaders in the field of pathology who value scholarly activity and choose leadership opportunities.
