The Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine of Emory University School of Medicine offers a Research Track for Residency Training in Anatomic Pathology (AP) or Clinical Pathology (CP). This track is intended for those residents who are committed to careers in academic pathology and have a strong background in biological and biomedical research. The Research Track is fully compliant with the American Board of Pathology requirements for residency training.
Twenty-four months of required rotations in Anatomic or Clinical Pathology will be completed and followed by three years of research under the supervision of the faculty of the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine. Research areas include, but are not limited to, Immunology, Epithelial Biology, Oncology, Transfusion Medicine, Neuroscience, and Infectious Disease. Descriptions of the research programs of the >40 faculty in the Division of Experimental Pathology are available at http://pathology.emory.edu/Research_HomePage.cfm.
In addition to one year of research during residency to satisfy the GME requirement for Pathology certification, the Department will provide an additional two years of PGY-level equivalent salary support for Research Track residents *. The resident in the Research Track will be expected to identify a research mentor within the Department within the first 18 months of residency. Progress during the Research Track will be facilitated by the Residency Research Committee with the goal of enhancing the career objectives of the resident. The Research Track also provides the option of incorporating clinical subspecialty training either before or during the research years, potentially leading to Board certification in that subspecialty.
