Our pathology residency program is a vibrant part of the department and our residents play a key role in patient care, education, and research.  Our strengths range from diagnostic surgical pathology and subspecialty training, to technologically advanced computerized clinical laboratories and molecular pathology at the modern Tulane University Hospital.  Our teaching faculty provide many opportunities for individual training across a wide range of areas of pathology, centralized on a health sciences center campus in the heart of a vibrant metropolitan community.  We strive for excellence and balance between diagnostic and investigative pathology. Our goal is to prepare pathologists for the challenges of a lifetime of professional growth.  Residents are accepted into the pathology program each year within and outside the Residency Matching Program.  Our graduates successfully obtain quality fellowships and you should expect these opportunities to be available should you complete residency training with us.  I invite you to learn more about our program through this website and to consider us as a place to begin your exciting future in pathology.  I hope that you will give serious consideration to visiting Tulane so that you can gain more insight into the strengths of our program.
