Program Personnel

The Department of Pathology at the UMass Chan Medical School has more than 30 faculty members with a wide range of backgrounds and subspecialty expertise. Each faculty member has a unique area of specialization and acts as a consultant for the program in developing and advancing that subspecialty. In addition, the surgical pathology division has four full-time pathologist assistants, who are strongly engaged in residents' teaching.

Residency Training Sites

During their training, residents rotate between the two main teaching sites: the UMass Memorial - University Campus, located on the same campus as UMass Chan Medical School, and the UMass Memorial - Memorial Campus, located 1.5 miles from the Medical School campus, as well as the Biotech 3 building, located directly across from the Medical School campus. A part of the residency training in Clinical Pathology is conducted at Quest Diagnostics laboratory in Marlborough, MA, 13 miles from the main campus.
