About the Program

We invite you to consider the advantages of a program that will expose you to:

  • high-powered faculty members dedicated to your success
  • comprehensive exposure to all subspecialties
  • a state-of-the-art clinical facility

The accomplishments of our residency graduates demonstrate our commitment to help you develop the necessary skills to succeed in your career endeavors. The pathology resident training program gives residents a broad comprehensive pathology background and opportunities to gain experience in all subspecialties.

In training residents, the Department strives to produce excellent practitioners. We also want our residents to learn to be good teachers and to acquire a critical and inquiring approach not only to diagnostics, but to investigating the unsolved problems of pathology.

Committed to Education

The AP/CP pathology resident training program lasts four years with five residents appointed annually. Our program is poised to meet the needs of the changing face of today’s health care. We aim to assure that residents receive a broad comprehensive background in pathology that will prepare them for a career path in academic or private practice pathology.

Regardless of a resident or fellow's choice of career path, he or she should feel fully confident of having received the best possible training in pathology. We believe at the completion of training, graduates of the University of Iowa Department of Pathology are prepared for the challenges ahead and can look forward to the fulfillment that comes from pursuing a career that fosters lifelong education.
