At Upstate Medical University, you will find a balanced and comprehensive program that is strong in both Anatomic and Clinical Pathology. We have a long standing tradition in Clinical Pathology, and a strong Anatomic Pathology division, with a mix of complex and diverse cases.

Our program goal is to provide physicians with training and experience sufficient to prepare them for competent, independent practice in pathology and to provide an environment that fosters individual career aspirations within the discipline of pathology. Training consists of direct experience and responsibility in the management of clinical cases in a variety of settings and is supplemented and made more comprehensive by a planned curriculum of teaching conferences. Exposure to a broad range of experiences in Anatomic, Clinical and experimental pathology provide opportunity for residents to explore individual interests and serve as a foundation for a career in academic pathology or community practice. The success of the program depends on mutual respect between the faculty and the residents, as well as commitment by all to both the service and educational objectives.

Our success as a training program is based not only on the quality of the education and medical care, but also on a great commitment to residency training.
