Pathology Residency Training Program

Yale’s pathology and laboratory medicine residency is an ACGME accredited training program offered through Yale University School of Medicine and Yale-New Haven Hospital. We offer three-year programs in AP only and CP only, a combined four-year AP/CP program and a four-year AP/NP track. We provide outstanding training in all aspects of pathology and laboratory medicine, as well as opportunities for research and individualized study. Our ultimate goal is to give our residents the strong scientific and medical foundation to excel in practice and prepare our residents to be leaders in the field.

Mission Statement

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, will be knowledgeable and competent in all areas of pathology, 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, as well as forays into the future of pathology practice. 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 community pathology leaders and internationally recognized academicians and scientists. 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.
