Welcome from the Residency Program Director

As the "doctor's doctor", pathologists are responsible for information that can change a patient's life and communicating that information to 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 four-year training program in Anatomic and Clinical Pathology.  Our program has been graduating successful pathologists for over fifty years, and in this era of personalized medicine and ever growing knowledge, we believe it is a great time to be a pathologist.  We are seeking 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 our department offers exposure to a wide variety of both common and uncommon cases from which to learn.  Please explore the other tabs in our website to find out more about our curriculum, residents, and excellent faculty.
