Diagnostic Laboratory Services
The Pathology Laboratories provide anatomic and clinical diagnostic services throughout the institution, and referral tests from outside institutions as well.
Investigators in pathology's sections on Comparative Medicine, Lipid Sciences, and Tumor Biology conduct basic and translational research. The department administers a number or shared research facilities as well; these are available to investigators throughout the institution, and include the WFU Primate Center, the Animal Resources Program, and the Cellular Imaging Core.
Residencies, Fellowships, and other Training Programs
Anatomic and Clinical Pathology and Subspecialties
Are you thinking about pathology as a career in medicine? The department offers a residency training program and five subspecialty fellowships. The ICPI distributes a brochure that describes the pathologist's role as clinician, consultant, researcher and teacher. Read about it online, or e-mail the ICPI at firstname.lastname@example.org to request a printed copy. The Program in Medical Laboratory Science also operates within the department and provides valuable training to second-year residents as well as professional training for Medical Laboratory Scientists.
Lipid Sciences, Comparative Medicine, Lab Animal Medicine, and Veterinary Pathology
In addition to our Lipid Sciences Training Program, the department's training programs include residency and fellowship programs in Comparative Medicine, Lab Animal Medicine, Primate Clinical Medicine, and Veterinary Pathology, as well as opportunities for both pre- and postdoctoral study.
The department also administers a master's degree in Comparative Medicine and a PhD in Molecular Pathology.
