The residency program in Anatomic and Clinical Pathology is the oldest residency at Danbury Hospital, accredited since 1958. Our residents interact in a multitude of ways with other Danbury Hospital staff and attending physicians in all departments and residency programs.
These interactions include a variety of clinicopathologic correlation in the form of:
- Clinical rounds
- Formal clinicopathologic conferences
- Delivery of laboratory consultative services, such as:
- Frozen sections
- Blood product transfusion requests
- Transfusion reactions
- Coagulation studies
- Bone marrow biopsies
Our residents also serve on a number of multidisciplinary Hospital committees and Tumor Boards, including Blood Bank Committee, Medical Education Committee, Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee, and Infection Control and Ethics Committee.
The above activities allow for a wealth of exposure of our residents to the whole spectrum of the healthcare delivery system, as well as providing for plentiful interactions with house staff from our institution's other residency programs and attending physicians.
