Program Curriculum

All residents are required to spend at least 18 months in Clinical Pathology and 25 months in Anatomic Pathology. The remaining 5 months can be spent in supervised elective rotations, which may be chosen in the fourth year of residency. These electives may take the form of additional time in already completed core rotations, time in subspecialty areas, or time gaining sign-out experience.
