Each year the Department of Pathology at the University of Chicago is home to over 30 residents and fellows. We offer postgraduate training in preparation for careers in the practice of general, subspecialty, academic pathology and pathology research. The Department strives to help its trainees develop the knowledge and skills needed to become leaders in their respective fields. The Department offers a four-year program for combined Anatomic and Clinical Pathology (AP/CP), as well as three-year programs for Anatomic Pathology (AP only) or Clinical Pathology (CP only). There is also a research track option for training in AP or CP intended for physician-scientists desiring research-intensive careers in academic pathology.
The programs are flexible and can be adapted for individual needs. Currently there are 23 residency positions, which are fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). In addition, the department supports two years of post doctoral fellowship following clinical training for anyone who wishes to conduct research in any laboratory within the University of Chicago.
