About the Program

The Brown Pathology Residency Program is certified by the Accreditation
Council of Graduate
Medical Education (ACGME) and is an accredited to train
up to 16 residents in a four-year program in Anatomic and Clinical Pathology
(AP/CP). Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University offers a
comprehensive, integrated postgraduate training program for medical graduates
planning careers in pathology. The Pathology Residency Program is designed
to help the graduate physician acquire a broad knowledge of anatomic
pathology and laboratory medicine; learn the techniques and methodologies
required for continued professional growth; and develop teaching skills,
research skills, and critical thinking habits.Throughout the program, emphasis is
placed on developing skills to obtain critical information from anatomic and
clinical pathology specimens to act as expert consulting physicians. The
pathobiology of human disease is also emphasized to provide residents with the
basis to understand and advance our knowledge of human disease throughout
their careers.

Mission

The Program's mission is to provide the highest quality residency training in
Anatomic and Clinical Pathology, to enhance the value of undergraduate and
graduate medical education in the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown
University affiliated programs, and to produce superior physicians with a
commitment to life-long learning and the scholarly practice of pathology.
