Pathology is the only clinical department in the medical school with a fully-accredited degree-granting graduate program (leading to a Ph.D. in Experimental Pathology). The research faculty are leaders in their fields and maintain well-funded programs largely focused in four areas of investigation: cancer biology, vascular biology, aging, and inflammatory/degenerative disease with an emphasis on translational approaches. The Experimental Pathology training program is a member of the university-wide Biological and Biomedical Sciences umbrella PhD training consortium, and is closely linked to the Yale Cancer Biology Training Program.
The Experimental Pathology curriculum includes mandatory didactic courses on disease mechanisms and cancer biology, additional mandatory and elective courses, and a Research in Pathology seminar series. Teaching materials including syllabi, PowerPoint presentations, handouts, and peer-reviewed literature. Further details are provided in the Experimental Pathology section.
A popular new course on grant-writing is now offered to pathology graduate students.
