Residency & Fellowships  pathology residents 2017


Our residents participate in a four-year residency program. We currently offer four fellowship programs, each program admits one fellow annually.

Our anatomic and clinical pathology training programs are integrated, emphasizing the unified nature of the information developed and interpreted by pathologists. Much of this effort is focused on the care of individual patients.

Abundant opportunities are available for residents to participate in the department's research programs, which address problems of contemporary interest and importance.

Additionally, residents are actively engaged in the department's teaching programs. Indeed, a tradition of excellence in teaching at all levels is a cornerstone of the department's activities.

Visit the Graduate Medical Education programs, listed to the right, at The Robert Larner, M.D. College of Medicine at The University of Vermont / The University of Vermont Medical Center to learn more about the programs and how to apply.
