About the Program
The Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center offers a fully ACGME-accredited residency program in combined Anatomic and Clinical Pathology. The program accepts three new residents annually to maintain a complement of twelve.
The Pathology Residency Program trains residents in all of the subspecialties encompassed by the field of Anatomic and Clinical Pathology. Graduates of the program are prepared to practice independently and confidently in any practice setting. The curriculum is structured to provide residents with the knowledge and skills required for practice at both academic and community environments. Residents learn from their experiences while providing patient care to the Cincinnati metropolitan area, southeastern Indiana, and northern Kentucky. Our residents, faculty, and staff are guided by the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine’s mission: to provide state-of-the-art pathology and laboratory medicine services while achieving excellence in patient care, education, and innovative research, and to help improve the lives of people.
Members of the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine strive to provide a quality work environment that fosters unity, respect for diversity, teamwork, and professional growth. The department emphasizes the importance of diversity and inclusion and works to create an environment where every individual is respected, regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, age, disability, gender presentation, or sexual orientation.
We promote excellence through teaching and practice in accordance with the ACGME-approved guidelines leading to board eligibility. Faculty and staff strive to assist our residents and will place at their disposal the resources of the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, the College of Medicine, the University of Cincinnati Medical Center, the Cincinnati Children Hospital Medical Center, the Cincinnati VA Medical Center, and the Hamilton County Coroner’s Office. Our faculty are committed to the residents’ learning experience and promote an intellectual environment where inquisitive minds can thrive and prosper through the acquisition of new knowledge and skills. We teach relevant, meaningful, and well-defined up-to-date clinical science as it applies to current standards in patient care.
