Why We Like New Haven
What Our Residents Have to Say
Our residency program is a rich experience, and our residents appreciate the depth and variety they encounter during their years here. Here are some of the things they have to say:
I am very grateful to have trained at Yale Pathology; I believe the residency program has effectively prepared me to function as a competent pathologist in either community practice or academia. The opportunities at Yale are endless; it is up to the trainees to seize them.
The camaraderie among the residents and faculty is unparalleled here. Not to mention, the Pathologists’ Assistant (PA) staff are always available to teach in the grossing room and this makes a huge difference when we’re on our anatomic pathology rotations. I am thankful to be surrounded by colleagues who are not only extremely knowledgeable, but also supportive and understanding.
The Laboratory Medicine/Clinical Pathology training is excellent. The services are hands-on and we learn through exposure to many interesting and challenging cases. What’s more, we always have support from our fellows and attendings, who take time to teach whenever there is an opportunity.
The training here is fantastic! The volume is high and there are variety of cases, which allow the trainees to become competent diagnosing bread-and-butter cases as well as rare and complicated entities. The attendings are very friendly and approachable. We had residents who had gone into different career tracks, both in academia and community practice. For those with a strong research interest, the physician-scientist program is excellent. The trainees work closely with multiple mentors of their choice in building a career towards becoming independent researchers, while receiving top-notch pathology training.
The people are what make the program great. My co-residents are really motivated and fun individuals who all have an infectious passion for pathology. It’s really refreshing and something you really don’t see everywhere.
