Pathology Residency

Hospital hallway

The University of Maryland Medical Center, the Baltimore VA Medical Center, and the Medical Examiner's Office of the State of Maryland combine to offer a four-year, ACGME-accredited residency program in Anatomic and Clinical Pathology. An Anatomic Pathology-only pathway is also available on an individual basis.

Residents take a mandatory three-year core program in the basic principals of anatomic and clinical pathology. Rotations include hematopathology, neuropathology and molecular diagnostics. Individuals with an interest in academic pathology will be encouraged to begin their research activities in the second and/or third year of training.

Second and third year residents have ample opportunities for elective time to encourage pursuit of individual subspecialty interests. The residency requirements are adapted to meet the educational and career objectives of each resident, while meeting the requirements of the American Board of Pathology and the ACGME. 

Currently, the department offers ACGME-accredited fellowship positions in Hematopathology and Cytopathology.

The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner offers a fully accredited one-year training program in forensic pathology for those who have completed anatomic and clinical pathology, or anatomic pathology training.
