The Educational Experience

The Department of Pathology offers comprehensive, in-depth training in all of the various pathology disciplines, as well as a complete array of subspecialty fellowship programs. It is our view that a strong academic environment with access to state-of-the-art and newly emerging diagnostic technologies is essential to the preparation of any pathologist for professional life in the 21st century, regardless of the ultimate practice setting. Therefore, basic training in our program is enhanced by extensive exposure to modern molecular diagnostics, advanced flow cytometric analysis, and molecular cytogenetics.

The Department provides diagnostic services in a variety of clinical settings that include a large county hospital (Parkland Memorial Hospital), two private University Hospitals (William P. Clements Jr. University Hospital and Zale Lipshy University Hospital), a tertiary care private pediatric hospital (Children’s Health℠), a large university outpatient clinic (James W. Aston Ambulatory Care Center), and the Dallas Veterans Affairs Medical Center, exposing our residents, fellows, and faculty to the full spectrum of human adult and pediatric disease.
