Pathology Residency Programs Boston


There are a total of 10 residency positions available in the program including up to 3 first-year positions. There is currently one fully funded fellowship position in cytopathology. The program actively seeks to recruit physicians who are under-represented in medicine.




Pathology Residency Programs Boston



The Department of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine at Boston University Chobanian & Avedisian School of Medicine also supports a Masters in Pathology Laboratory Sciences and a PhD program in pathology that has an enrollment of 27 students and shares facilities and some academic programs with the residency program. Active participation in research projects, by our residents, is expected, supported and encouraged.


Jeffrey Saffitz, M.D., Ph.D., an internationally renowned pathologist andinvestigator, assumed the position of Department Chairman in July 2005.With the appointment of Dr. Saffitz there has been significant investmentby BIDMC in the Pathology Department including expansion of the residencytraining program, recruitment of additional clinical and research faculty,and further development of state-of-the-art facilities in which to practicepathology, train residents and fellows, and conduct research. Already longrecognized for excellence, our training programs, now with new resourcesand the highest commitment from Dr. Saffitz, will continue to develop andflourish.


Welcome to the Department of Pathology and Laboratory medicine at Tufts Medical Center! The goal of the Pathology and Laboratory Medicine Residency Program is to provide a balanced educational program in both anatomic and clinical pathology that will generate graduates of the highest quality. Most of the residency training occurs at our home institution - Tufts Medical Center, a 415-bed tertiary care teaching hospital for the Tufts University School of Medicine. The residency program has a unique balance of academic- and research based experiences all with dedicated faculty and staff to guide and mentor the residents through their training.Tufts Medical Center has a long tradition of high quality training with excellence in all general and specialty areas of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine. Graduates of our program usually obtain outstanding fellowships in subspecialties of their choice and most have achieved considerable success in either academic or community pathology programs.


In addition, as part of the department's mission to advance research, financial and technical support are provided by the department, and residents are required to be involved in scholarly activity during their training. For post residency training, the department offers five ACGME-accredited fellowship training in GI/liver pathology, breast/GYN pathology, dermatopathology, cytopathology, and hematopathology.


The VA Boston Residency Program was started in 1979 which makes it one of the oldest Optometry residency programs in existence. The program has expanded over the years and now consists of 9 total residents, spread out in three different campuses in and around the greater Boston area. We are affiliated with The New England College of Optometry and have a large network of dozens and dozens of past residents practicing over the country and the world.


The departmental faculty teach Medical Immunology and General Pathology (Disease and Therapy) to medical students in the four-year program. The department also offers a combined MD/PhD degree that is integrated with the four-year medical program. The residency training program provides a combined anatomic and clinical pathology pathway to American Board of Pathology certification. The department also currently holds an NIH training grant that provides two years of fellowship training in basic science investigation of the Immunobiology of Trauma.


Our department is committed to providing excellence in diagnostic pathology, in biomedical research, and in graduate and medical education. For further information, please contact the BU Chobanian & Avedisian School of Medicine at 617-414-7914 or dekiley@bu.edu; or BMC residency at 617-414-5314.


The BWH Pathology Residency Training Program, and the MGH Pathology Residency Training Program, are two outstanding - but historically separate - pathology residency programs, both located in Boston, Massachusetts and affiliated with Harvard Medical School. While the BWH and MGH pathology residencies have operated independently of one another for over 50 years, we are now coming together to embark on a new era in pathology training with the creation of a joint BWH-MGH residency training experience, beginning in July 2023. We welcome you to become part of this historic first class.


Joint educational initiatives are not new to Mass General Brigham. Many of our current pathology fellowships span both BWH and MGH (Dermatopathology, Transfusion Medicine, Molecular Genetic Pathology and Clinical Informatics, as well as Hematopathology starting in 2023), and many other Mass General Brigham residency programs have been providing combined training at both BWH and MGH for many years, including Dermatology, Emergency Medicine, Neurology, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Orthopedic Surgery, Plastic Surgery, and Radiation Oncology..


Our departments are also committed to fostering a diverse, equitable, and inclusive environment for all who work within our system. On the level of residency training, this begins at recruitment and continues throughout the training experience, where we provide welcoming, supportive and open work environments as well as opportunities for community involvement and outreach. Our programs work closely with the BWH and MGH Centers for Diversity and Inclusion to aid us in this mission. The advancement of our discipline and the care of our patients depends on a community of professionals who reflect all cultures, races, ethnicities, religions, sexual orientations, gender identities, and differing abilities.


The goal of the pathology residency is to prepare physicians not only to practice in the broad fields of pathology and laboratory medicine, but to create leaders who will change the practice of medicine. Whether by using data generated in the clinical laboratories to develop better testing or treatment algorithms, developing new mass spec-based diagnostic tests, or developing new AI-enabled tools to improve diagnostic accuracy, we provide the opportunity to use your skills to make the world a better place, one patient at a time.

The required medical knowledge and skill set for the pathologist of 2020 are different than in 2005. Pathology residency training curriculum must accordingly change to fulfill the needs of these ever-changing requirements. In order to make rational curricular adjustments, it is important for us to know the current trajectory of resident training in pathology-where we have been, what our actual current training curriculum is now-to understand how that might change in anticipation of meeting the needs of a changing patient and provider population and to fit within the evolving future biomedical and socioeconomic health-care setting. In 2013, there were 143 Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education-accredited pathology residency training programs in the United States, with approximately 2400 residents. There is diversity among residency training programs not only with respect to the number of residents but also in training venue(s). To characterize this diversity among pathology residency training programs, a curriculum survey was conducted of pathology residency program directors in 2013 and compared with a similar survey taken almost 9 years previously in 2005 to identify trends in pathology residency curriculum. Clinical pathology has not changed significantly in the number of rotations over 9 years; however, anatomic pathology has changed dramatically, with an increase in the number of surgical pathology rotations coupled with a decline in stand-alone autopsy rotations. With ever-expanding medical knowledge that the graduating pathology resident must know, it is necessary to (1) reflect upon what are the critical need subjects, (2) identify areas that have become of lesser importance, and then (3) prioritize training accordingly.


We believe that several factors contributed to the success of this curriculum, including resident leadership in all aspects of the curriculum, from development to implementation and integration into the longitudinal pathology residency curriculum. Just as crucial was the support of the educational leadership within both Pathology and Radiology Residency Programs to provide the conference time, including both program directors and our 2 faculty advisors (J.E.B. and S.A.M.).
