Program Overview

The Yale-New Haven Medical Center consists of the 944-bed Yale New Haven Hospital and the affiliated Yale University School of Medicine. The hospital includes the Smilow Cancer Hospital at Yale-New Haven, the 201-bed Yale-New Haven Children's Hospital, and the 76-bed Yale-New Haven Psychiatric Hospital. The Yale-New Haven Medical Center provides training for residents seeking Board certification in Anatomic Pathology (AP), Clinical Pathology (CP), and both Anatomic and Clinical Pathology (AP/CP). The mission of our ACGME-accredited training program is to provide comprehensive post-graduate training and to produce pathologists who will be leaders in clinical practice, research, and academia, and who will advance the field of pathology locally, nationally, and internationally.

Pathology training at Yale focuses on developing and enhancing the role of the pathologist as a diagnostic consultant, using both traditional techniques and state-of-the-art approaches. Our faculty provide diverse role models for residents and have a proven track record for the highest quality teaching.

Combined with extensive pathology fellowship opportunities, our residency program has produced internationally recognized academicians and scientists as well as community pathology leaders. Although most of our graduates proceed along traditional pathways of pathology practice, others have pursued positions in forensic medicine, biotechnology, healthcare administration, and the law. Our diverse graduates are united by the common theme of being among the best in their chosen pathology career.
