Pathology—the study of the nature of disease and its causes, processes, development, and consequences—provides the single largest component of objective scientific data used by healthcare providers. An estimated 60 to 70 percent of all decisions regarding a patient’s diagnosis, treatment, hospital admission, and discharge are based on laboratory test results.
The faculty and staff in the Department of Pathology at SUNY Upstate Medical University utilize state-of-the-art technology to provide comprehensive diagnostic services to University Hospital patients and physicians as well as the Central New York medical community. We combine the sophisticated testing capabilities of our fully accredited laboratories with the resources of an academic medical center to deliver cutting edge pathology services.
Research is an essential component of our academic programs. Undergraduate and graduate students, medical technology students, residents, and fellows work closely with faculty members to gain new understanding into the mechanisms of disease and how to apply this knowledge to medical practice.
Many of our laboratories serve as referral centers for highly specialized testing and professional consultation services for physicians and institutions throughout the country.
