Our faculty and residents teach the medical school and dental school second-year pathology courses (including lectures, small group sessions and laboratory), and we offer second, third and fourth year medical student electives, as well as rotations for trainees from other institutions. We also offer a graduate program in pathology for prospective master's degree and PhD candidates.
