Welcome from the Residency Program Director

"Far and away the best prize that life has to offer is the chance to work hard at work worth doing"
Theodore Roosevelt

Pathologists are the linemen of medicine: good ones seldom receive the praise they merit, yet they play a vital role in medicine. The "doctor's doctor" is responsible for information that can change a patient's life. Accurate pathology decision-making is critical to appropriate patient care.

At KU we seek to produce the best community, research and academic pathologists possible. We offer a four-year training program in Anatomic and Clinical Pathology. Our program has been graduating successful pathologists for almost fifty years. Approximately four residents enter the program each year. Our program is challenging and educationally rigorous, but never mean-spirited. We welcome all applicants. Above all, 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. 

I would like to personally thank you for considering the KU pathology residency program. Pathology is an important and challenging specialty that demands the best you can offer. Please explore the other tabs in our website to find out more about our curriculum, residents, and faculty. 

Good luck and safe travels during the interview season!
