The residency program in the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine offers an Anatomic Pathology training program, a Clinical Pathology training program, and a 48-month combined Anatomic and Clinical Pathology training program. There are 15 pathology residents divided among the four years. Physicians may enter the program immediately upon graduation from medical school or at a more advanced level.
The goal of our residency program is to produce both academic leaders in diagnostic pathology and research and well-rounded pathologists prepared for careers in community practice. Our educational objective is to ensure that each trainee acquires the knowledge, skills, attitudes, and behaviors that are desirable in a professional pathologist.
In addition to its outstanding curriculum, the residency program offers the chance to live in one of the nation's most appealing regions. In fact, nearly 40% of all the physicians who train at the Medical Center ultimately choose to practice in the Capital Region.
With over twenty area colleges and universities--including a law school and a world-class engineering school-- the Capital Region is an intellectual center that attracts distinguished visitors from the worlds of science, politics, education, literature, and the performing arts. The area's collegiate atmosphere is also reflected by filled football stadiums, sold-out NCAA Division I hockey games, and an annual regatta that attracts New England's finest rowing teams.
The surrounding countryside is easily accessible for family outings, weekend get-aways, and year-round outdoor recreation. Individuals with more "sophisticated" tastes find the cultural environment equally as rich and equally as accessible.
Regardless of your religion, ethnicity, age, or interests, you will quickly discover that the Capital Region offers a very special quality of life.
