Educational Programs in Pathology & Laboratory Medicine
Developments in clinical and research laboratories must be shared with the next generation. Faculty teach in our array of educational programs that include a robust residency training program, post-residency fellowships, the Ph.D. program, postdoctoral fellowships, and medical student required courses and electives. The department also maintains a longstanding year-out medical student fellowship.
The University of Rochester Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine trains exceptional residents for practice in the rapidly evolving field of anatomic and clinical pathology.
We offer 10 post-residency fellowships, including dermatopathology, cytopathology, GI/hepatobiliary, and forensic pathology.
The Ph.D. program in cellular and molecular pathology is a multidisciplinary program with faculty mentors from some 15 departments. The curriculum includes an emphasis on clinical as well as basic science topics.
Ph.D. Program Information
Clinical/Medical Technology Advanced Certificate
This full-time program prepares students for professional careers in clinical laboratory science. Students will complete both didactic and clinical experiences (preceptorships) at the University of Rochester Medical Center. Instructors include NYS licensed Clinical Laboratory Technologists and clinical faculty.
UR Medicine Labs is pleased to offer a 7-week phlebotomy certification course that combines clinical and didactic instruction.
William B. Hawkins Post-Sophomore Fellowship for Medical Students
Year-out medical student fellowships in Pathology give students an opportunity to consolidate their knowledge in a clinical setting. Fellows function as junior members of the resident staff, participating in clinical and research rotations. The Department also offers a number of electives that introduce students to the workings of a modern pathology department and the variety of career choices in pathology and laboratory medicine.
The "Explorations in Pathology" pre-college program offers high school students a unique experience exploring the multifaceted discipline of pathology, a cornerstone of modern medicine.
Postdoctoral Research Fellowships
Departmental investigators are always interested in hearing from individuals with a doctoral degree and a background in a shared research area. See available positions, but also individual faculty and lab pages.
