Our mission is to prepare the resident for a successful career in a wide variety of areas in Anatomic and Clinical Pathology. 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.  The healthcare needs of our patients will be treated in a safe, cost-effective, patient-centered environment that ensures high quality, consistency and respect.

Program Aims

  1. When training is complete, the individual should be exceedingly competent in overall Pathology skills, an excellent diagnostician, understand the role of medical lab director, an effective communicator and patient care focused.
  2. After completing the program, the resident should be able to practice his/her specialty with distinction within a variety of healthcare environments and maintain this excellence for the length of his/her career.
  3. Residents who complete the program will have competence in general AP/CP pathology, a strong understanding of disease pathways and outcomes, technologies to diagnose them, qualified to enter a fellowship program, and excel in individual goals, however the program will also prepare the resident to practice in a career that is increasingly becoming self-specialized.
  4. It is our program’s goal to train and cultivate pathologists who can ultimately practice in the state of Tennessee.
