University of Toledo Health Sciences Campus
The University of Toledo pathology residency program is composed of a compliment of eight residents and two post-sophomore pathology fellows. Approximately two residents are accepted each year through the match program. The faculty possesses a wide variety of expertise in both Anatomic and Clinical Pathology with particular strengths in Neuropathology, Hematopathology, Cytopathology, and Renal Pathology, Molecular Diagnostics and Clinical Microbiology. In addition, residents have the opportunity to rotate at the Pinkus Dermatopathology Laboratory in Monroe, MI for an exceptional exposure to lesions of the skin as well as Akron Children’s Hospital for Pediatric Pathology. One of many unique attributes of the program is the thriving Electron Microscopy lab of which residents gain first hand knowledge and experience in ultrastructure morphology from a wide variety of in-house and consult cases.
The curriculum is structured with a balance of Anatomic and Clinical Pathology throughout the four year program, with an emphasis in Anatomic Pathology during the first two years and Clinical Pathology during the final two years. Didactic lectures in both Anatomic and Clinical Pathology and surgical unknown conferences routinely take place throughout each week beginning at 8:00 A.M. Residents also directly participate in both intradepartamental and interdepartamental conferences with attending physician support.
