resident pool party 2023


The University of Rochester Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine trains exceptional residents for practice in the rapidly evolving field of Pathology.

Residents are integral physician-members of our team which is dedicated to serving a diverse patient population throughout western New York in an expanding regional healthcare model.

Residents are provided great breadth and depth of exposure to all fields in Pathology. With an Anatomic Pathology subspecialty model, strong Clinical Pathology training and diverse elective opportunities, residents can personalize their educational experience to prepare them for any future subspecialty or practice setting.

Residents participate in active research programs and projects to improve standards of practice, with the goal of developing pathologists who will drive the future of innovation in pathology.

The motto of the University is "Meliora", meaning "ever better." The Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine trains residents to become the pathologists of the future that will continuously aim to be ever better.

What our residents say...

Treyc Terry, MD

"The Pathology residency at URMC has provided an environment where I can truly be myself, which has allowed for growth both professionally and personally. From the various access to mentors, or the natural camaraderie between my fellow residents, I am excited to learn each day with a smile."

"I moved to Rochester completely sight-unseen, due to the virtual interview process. I was pleasantly surprised by the warm reception, and the constant efforts to individualize my curriculum tract to suit my specific career aspirations. It was immediately apparent that every resident is valued here. Beyond the walls of Strong, I have fallen in love with the area. Cost of living is amazing, and there are countless extracurricular activities at our fingertips: beaches, waterfalls, breweries, ice skating, skiing/snowboarding, horseback riding – even circus arts. Rochester is such a unique gem; I feel incredibly lucky to have the opportunity to train here."
