Welcome from the Residency Program Director
As the "doctor's doctor," pathologists are responsible for providing life-changing information to patients and other doctors. Accurate pathology decision making is critical to appropriate patient care.
At KU, we seek to provide excellent patient care by producing the best community, research and academic pathologists possible through our integrated four-year training program in anatomic and clinical pathology. Our program has been graduating successful pathologists for over 50 years, and in this era of personalized medicine and ever growing knowledge, we believe it is a great time to be a pathologist. We seek hard-working individuals with good communication skills and a strong team first mentality. Our top priority is your success, regardless of whether you opt for a career in community practice or academic medicine. Our program has a strong commitment to teaching and patient care, and offers exposure to a wide variety of common and uncommon cases from which to learn. Please explore the other areas of our website to find out more about our curriculum, residents and excellent faculty.
