Education

Pathology

We educate clinicians and scientists from undergraduate through postdoctoral researcher. The pathology faculty are rountinely nominated by the medical students for Vermont Integrated Curriculum (VIC) teaching awards.

 

 

Medical Students

The department is an active participant in the Vermont Integrated Curriculum, a series of multidisciplinary courses. Our pathologists are instrumental in the continued success of the curriculum for students.

Our pathologists – attendings, housestaff officers and student fellows alike – give lectures, teach in laboratories, and facilitate small group colloquia. The Department offers electives for medical students in the third and fourth clinical years.

Graduate and Postgraduate

With an educational focus on basic and clinical research in human disease, our graduate training incorporates didactic and interactive teaching in Departmental and Cell and Molecular Biology courses. Laboratory-based teaching of research techniques, planning and execution of experiments, critical evaluation and interpretation of research data allows presentation of results to other scientists in both oral and written formats.

Our highly competitive clinical training programs serve 16 residents and three fellows through our Residency & Fellowship program. We also offer a Pathology Medical Student Fellowship a one-year course of study for selected medical students.

Graduate student support is provided through the Department of Pathology Graduate Research Assistantships, and the Environmental Pathology Training Grant encourages the development of graduate students as future scientists.
