Curriculum

Resident training is composed of core training and advanced training. Core training is designed to provide each first year resident with an introduction to both anatomic and clinical pathology, particularly in preparation for handling resident call responsibilities. Residents must successfully complete core training before progressing to advanced training. Residents are not assigned call responsibilities until they have successfully completed the core curriculum.
