Pathology and Laboratory Medicine contributes to the clinical, educational and research missions of Drexel University College of Medicine by providing a solid foundation for understanding disease processes in individual patients as well as in general terms. Since our discipline uses basic science approaches to elucidate clinical disease, we are in a strategic position to provide an important educational bridge and to conduct translational research.

Pathology Education

Our faculty members actively participate in the education of medical students, graduate students, residents and fellows. They are involved in both the instruction and administration of the md program curricular tracks, a senior elective and a pathology pathway. Graduate medical education comprises a combined AP/CP residency program as well as cytopathology, surgical pathology and hematopathology fellowships. Our department is also the institutional sponsor for the forensic pathology fellowship that is offered by the Philadelphia Medical Examiner's Office. Finally, the department sponsors two CME programs that are aimed at faculty development.
