Undergraduate Medical Education Programs Overview

The Department of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine provides vital flourishing education programs in medical and research disciplines. Graduate medical programs include Anatomic and Clinical pathology residency, Cytopathology fellowship, Hematopathology fellowship and Surgical Pathology fellowship. Undergraduate fourth-year electives and Post-Sophomore fellowships are offered for medical students. Our Basic Science/Research Division offers MS and PhD programs in collaboration with the University's IGPBS program. The majority of the student's degree training centers on experimental laboratory investigation.

Our Basic Science Division hosts an active an varied Research Seminar Series and our Clinical Services Division provides Grand Rounds lectures to help meet accreditaion requirements for University faculty and promote further investigation into better practice methods and up-to-the-minute developments in basic science and translational research.

Our faculty is actively involved in the development and presentation of curriculum materials to first and second year medical students at the University of Kansas School of Medicine. The Department further supports medical education by providing electives in Autopsy, Surgical, Clinical and General pathology to medical students enrolled in LCME-accredited programs.
