The Department of Pathology at the University of Chicago offers a wide range of educational opportunities to medical students, residents, fellows, graduate students, post-graduate fellows, and visitors.
Those who are familiar with medical training know that pathology plays a vital role in medical education, contributing much to the core curriculum in medical school, ranging from introductory histology to microbiology to integrated pathology. Appropriately so, the value of this education and these educational endeavors is retained and emphasized even more so as one progresses through their pathology career. This department attracts those who enjoy teaching students, working alongside trainees, sharing their experiences, and pursuing knowledge.
The Department of Pathology seeks to train exceptional pathologists who will become leaders in the field of pathology. One of our highest objectives is to foster the careers of young trainees and to give them the training and opportunities needed to become future leaders in pathology research, education and practice.
Faculty within the Department of Pathology are actively involved in teaching and training within the undergraduate college, Pritzker School of Medicine and a number of our Biosciences Graduate programs.
