University of Vermont Pathology Residency Program


At the University of Vermont Medical Center we offer a dynamic, broad-based pathology residency program in anatomic and clinical pathology. Pathology residents are an integral part of the medical care team, accepting increasing responsibility as their experience expands.

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.

Finally, 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.

We welcome your interest in our pathology residency program. We believe that our program offers a unique blend of core training and electives which ensures a broad, thorough education in the major disciplines of pathology while retaining sufficient flexibility to meet the needs of each individual.

When residents and fellows complete their training they are well-prepared to meet the challenges of the new millennium. We hope that, after reviewing our pathology residency program information, you will consider visiting us to learn first-hand about the opportunities for training at UVM Medical Center.


The Pathology Department of the University of Vermont College of Medicine and UVM Medical Center offers a combined pathology training program leading to board qualification in anatomic and clinical pathology.

The Pathology Department, which includes 30 full-time faculty members, is responsible for the management of all of the anatomic pathology and clinical laboratory services provided by UVM Medical Center, Vermont's Academic Medical Center. This includes laboratory services for many hospitals and physician practice groups throughout Vermont and New York State.

The faculty is also responsible for teaching pathology to medical students and undergraduates in the allied health sciences. In addition, the department has developed a diverse research program with a budget of several million dollars annually.

Currently, the department accepts up to 20 residents and fellows. Customarily, we accept 3-4 new house staff each year. The majority of our applicants are enrolled in the National Residents Matching Program, and ERAS. In addition, the department offers fellowship training in surgical pathology, cytopathology, dermatopathology, and hematopathology.
