Programs are available for residents in the combined Anatomic Pathology (AP)/Clinical Pathology (CP) Program, as well as for residents in either straight CP or straight AP.
An 18-month core curriculum in CP is offered to all residents to assure familiarity with all aspects of Laboratory Medicine. The core curriculum allows flexibility for subspecialization and tailoring the CP electives program to the individual interests of each resident.
Residents in the straight CP program, however, are required to complete a total of 36 months of training in Laboratory Medicine.
Research and clinical subspecialty opportunities are available to allow completion of the 3rd year of the CP track, as well as for residents in the AP/CP program who wish to pursue additional training in Laboratory Medicine. Research may be pursued not only within the Department, but also with mentors in basic science or clinical departments in the School of Medicine, School of Public Health, and Yale University.
While CP residents who are aiming for an academic research career are encouraged to apply for external support for research fellowships (such as K awards), salary is guaranteed for the full training period required for board eligibility in Clinical Pathology.
