Pathology Residency Program in the Top 10 for Quality of Clinical Training

August 31, 2015

The Pathology Residency Program at the University of Pennsylvania was ranked in this year’s Top 10 Residency Programs by reputation for quality of clinical training as determined by the physician network Doximity. The Doximity “Residency Navigator” combines feedback from U.S. physicians with objective data on residency programs across 22 specialties and “alumni outcomes” analyses from the CVs and career paths of over 700,000 U.S. physicians. Reputation data was derived from peer nominations from over 30,000 board-certified physicians and statistically weighted to produce reputation values that represent the opinions of all survey-eligible physicians. A total of 141 US Anatomic and Clinical Pathology training programs were assessed.

The Department’s Program was also ranked No. 5 among Anatomic and Clinical Pathology residency programs by research contributions from graduates in the last ten years, as measured by collective publication h-indices and research grants.

The Residency Program at the University of Pennsylvania is a leading fully integrated program with balanced strengths in all main arenas of modern academic pathology – Anatomic Pathology, Laboratory Medicine, Transfusion Medicine and Therapeutic Pathology, and Experimental Pathology. The Program is academically rigorous and is considered one of the top training programs in the nation, particularly for those interested in an academic career focused in Transfusion Medicine, Neuropathology, Cytopathology, Molecular Genetic Pathology, Forensic Pathology, or Hematopathology.
