Combined Anatomic Pathology/Clinical Pathology (AP/CP) Program Track
The Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania (HUP) is the primary training site for the residency program. Pediatric rotations are taken at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia which is located adjacent to HUP. Forensic Pathology rotation may be taken at either the Philadelphia Medical Examiner’s Office or the Delaware State Medical Examiner’s Office (about 45 minutes by car from Penn). Electives in Anatomic and Clinical Pathology are available at HUP as well as Pennsylvania Hospital (PAH), Lancaster General Hospital (LGH) and the Philadelphia Veterans Affairs (VA) Hospital. Up to 6 months of an ACGME accredited residency can be provided to fully pursue research.
Most residents in our program train in the combined AP/CP track. This integrated 4-year program in combined Anatomic and Clinical Pathology is a “hybrid program” consisting of exposure to both AP and CP in each of the first 3 years with opportunities for more concentrated time in areas of interest in year 4 and includes training in the following areas:
AP/CP Core Rotations (42 months)
Adult Surgical Pathology
Pediatric Surgical Pathology
Electives / Research (6 months)
