Our Mission

Improving health and healthcare through

Our Vision

The Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine is integrated around our four strategic themes: Our People, High Value Patient Care, Living Our Academic Mission, and Supporting Our Strategic Plan.  

Our strategic themes support and drive our clinical, research, teaching, and community missions.  We work collaboratively within a culture of intellectual enthusiasm, hard work, personal integrity, mutual respect, and fiscal responsibility.  We celebrate our successes, and work to solve issues that arise, together as a department.  

Our faculty, trainees, and staff feel supported and valued for their contributions, to our department, our institutions, our region, and national and international initiatives. Our success has been driven by our coming together as a department with everyone working to their capacity and contributing to our successes.  We are nationally recognized as one of the great academic pathology departments.
