Anatomic Pathology

Anatomic Pathology Training

Training in anatomic pathology (AP) is integrated with that in clinical pathology (CP) throughout the 4-year general pathology (AP/CP) program in this department. Residents are actively involved with AP in all 4 years, and the on-call resident covers both AP and CP.

All pathology residents start the formal AP experience by completing required rotations in autopsy (forensic) pathology and surgical pathology. The 1st year usually encompasses 4 months of autopsy, 4 months of surgical pathology, 1 month of clinical chemistry, 1 month cytopathology, 1 month hematopathology, and 1 month blood bank.

Over the subsequent 3 years, residents will complete an additional 2 months of autopsy, 8 months of surgical pathology, 3 months of cytopathology, 2 months of dermatopathology and 2 months of renal pathology.

Two-month elective rotations may be taken in any of these subjects, or can be arranged in research, immunopathology, neuropathology, electron microscopy or cytogenetics.
