The Residency Training Program in the Department of Pathology Provides training in clinical pathology (CP), anatomic pathology (AP), and research. Clinical training encompasses either a combined AP/CP program or exclusive training in AP or CP. The combined AP/CP training program is organized in an integrative model where residents alternate between AP and CP rotations throughout their four-year program. Research training is available either exclusively as post-doctoral fellowship training or can be linked with clinical training. Resident training programs are personally designed, and formulated to meet professional goals as well as ACGME and American Board of Pathology requirements for training in specific disciplines. Our residents typically have completed medical school within five years of initiating residency training and scored above the national average for USMLE I and II.
Fellowship training is offered in many of the subspeciality areas of Pathology. We have ACGME certified fellowships in Blood Banking and Transfusion Medicine, Chemical Pathology, Cytopathology, Dermatopathology, Forensic Pathology, Hematopathology, Molecular Genetic Pathology, Neuropathology, Pediatric Pathology, and Surgical Pathology. In addition, we offer training in the areas of Bone and Soft Tissue Pathology, Breast Pathology, Gastrointestinal Pathology, Genitourinary Pathology, Gynecologic Pathology, Informatics, Pulmonary Pathology and Research.
We have a rich academic environment for our Residency Training Program. In fact, our 2016 Residency Ranking was considered #1 in the nation. The University of Michigan Health System is robust and very successful, with a large network and numerous off-site clinics. This extensive network feeds into the central Medical Center complex where pathology residents receive their training. We welcome your interest. Applications for residency training are accepted through NRMP ERAS. A link for fellowship applications can be found here.
Dear prospective residents,
Thanks so much for your interest in our program! We’re excited to share with you why we love training here. Both of us graduated from medical schools in California, interviewed broadly across the country, and couldn’t help but be drawn to the culture, academic environment, program design, and most importantly, the people here at University of Michigan Pathology.
As chiefs, we get to see first-hand how much the department values resident input, from each having served as resident liaisons to our AP Operations committee, to serving on the department Patient and Families Advisory Council and laboratory relocation project committee (Pathology Renovation and Relocation Project, or PRR). The residency program and residents are definitely a high priority of the department.
In addition to the excellent training we have here, there are also a multitude of ways to get involved in research, committee membership and leadership development. And we have a lot of fun hanging out together too, on our summer kickball team (Zellballin’), weekend get-togethers, or Halloween costume parties.
Having been here for several years now, we can’t imagine training anywhere else. We’d love to tell you more about it, answer any questions you might have, or just get to know you a little bit better. Feel free to reach out to us via e-mail in the links below.
Thanks again for your interest!
