Letter from the Director

Chair/program director imageThe Department of Pathology at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center (UTHSC) offers a four-year ACGME accredited pathology residency program in Memphis, Tennessee.  Our mission is to prepare the resident for a successful career in a wide variety of areas in Anatomic and Clinical Pathology.  UTHSC strives to provide an outstanding residency experience that allows each resident to reach his or her maximum potential in a supportive learning environment.

In addition to developing an extensive knowledge base, the training fosters and emphasizes the developing of continuous learning as a life-long habit, and service to patients as a first priority.  When training is complete, the individual should be exceedingly competent in Pathology, as well as an excellent manager, communicator and a better informed individual.  The resident should be able to practice his or her specialty with distinction within a variety of healthcare environments and maintain this excellence for the length of his or her career.

On behalf of the Department of Pathology faculty and staff, I invite you to learn more about what we have to offer.  We hope that you will consider our top-notch training program as you begin your career in anatomic and clinical pathology.

Best regards,
