Premium Teaching Institutions
Cleveland Clinic's Pathology and Laboratory Medicine Institute is the largest volume hospital laboratory in the state of Ohio and the 15th largest in the United States, with approximately 1,300 dedicated employees and performing more than 12 million tests annually. The Institute provides crucial pathology and laboratory testing services to patients at Cleveland Clinic, the Cleveland Clinic family health centers and externally through Cleveland Clinic Laboratories.
The clinical programs of the Department offer advanced services in all subspecialties of anatomic, clinical, surgical, and molecular pathology. Our faculty members have authored numerous textbooks and scientific papers. The Department has had distinguished residency and fellowship programs since 1892 and teaching residents, medical students, and Ph.D students remains an important commitment.
Expanded Teaching Institutions
Geisinger research pursues an ambitious agenda with the long-term goal of directly impacting the health of our patients, our community and health care as a whole. A unique aspect of Geisinger research is that, unlike traditional academic approaches, scientists are integrally connected to the clinical enterprise. This facilitates interdisciplinary team-based collaborations to address clinically relevant questions.
Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center - the world's oldest and largest private cancer center - has devoted more than 130 years to exceptional patient care, innovative research, and outstanding educational programs. Today, we are one of 47 National Cancer Institute - designated Comprehensive Cancer Centers, with state-of-the-art science flourishing side by side with clinical studies and treatment.
Basic Teaching Institutions
The mission of the East Carolina University Department of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine, in conjunction with Vidant Medical Center, is to improve the health and well being of the citizens of eastern North Carolina and beyond by (1) delivering the highest quality pathology services, (2) providing exemplary education for medical students, residents, and other health care professionals, and (3) creating new knowledge through research.
The Department of Pathology is a critical core service in the nationally-recognized Duke Health Systems and School of Medicine, serving three hospitals, community practices, and the Durham VA Hospital
Our Department’s main mission of clinical patient care is supported by 46 senior staff pathologists and clinical scientists who are members of the Henry Ford Medical Group. They are complemented by 710 technical staff who manage over 11 million clinical laboratory tests and over 150,000 anatomic pathology specimen examinations. Clinical volumes are enhanced by a robust Outreach service – the Henry Ford Medical Laboratories that serve local and international clients.
The Department of Pathology at Montefiore Medical Center is one of the largest and most comprehensive medical center laboratories on the east coast. With a staff of nearly 700 associates and more than 50 pathologists and PhDs, our laboratories perform more than 10 million laboratory test results, interpretations, and diagnostic consultations each year.
The Division of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine is the integral bridge between clinical care and basic science at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. It plays an essential role in the institution's mission to improve patient care and eliminate cancer and allied diseases as a significant problem in Texas, the United States and the world.
As an investigative discipline, pathology researchers identify the origins of disease and contribute to strategies for its treatment. As a medical discipline, pathologists engage in patient care as consultants and innovators for biochemical, molecular, and cell biology tests that guide diagnostic and treatment choices. Through these roles, the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at UCLA assists doctors and patients in making optimal decisions based on the latest diagnostic studies, using state-of-the-art instrumentation. Each month, approximately 50,000 clinical tests, and 1,500 biopsy and cytology cases, are analyzed to guide the care of patients in UCLA Health System, and through our referral network regionally and nationally.
The Department of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine (DPLM), Cumming School of Medicine is affiliated with Calgary Laboratory Services (CLS), a wholly owned subsidiary of Alberta Health Services - Calgary Zone. The Department of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine (DPLM) comprised of medical and scientific staff for Calgary Laboratory Services (CLS). The department has 6 CLS Clinical Sections and has 82 primary clinical MD appointees and 13 clinical PhD scientists. There are 28 members with University of Calgary and 67 members with Clinical Faculty appointments.
The Department is dedicated to training the next generation of practicing and experimental pathologists. To capitalize on the unique position of the Pathology Department's relationships with clinical and basic research departments, our research effort has a strong translational focus, and is home to federally funded investigator-initiated clinical trials – a true manifestation of a bench to bedside approach of medical investigations. The major theme of our Research Section is a unique fusion of molecular epidemiology and pathology. A novel Section of Transdisciplinary Pathology helps integrate research throughout the College of Medicine and the other Health Science Colleges. The Department hosts Core Laboratories in advanced tissue imaging techniques and research histology including immunohistochemistry, in-situ hybridization, tissue microarrays and laser capture micro-dissection. Together with Cancer Center, we house a Tissue Biorepository and will be developing shared virtual tissue banks with other academic centers.
The goals of the Department of Pathology are inseparable from the goals of the Health System: leadership in education, research, and service. In addition, by virtue of its position, the Department is dedicated to serve in a unifying role within the university medical community.
Education. Research. Service. Unifying role.
The Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathology at the University of Minnesota Medical School is committed to bringing leading-edge basic and applied research and innovation to patient care. The research-intensive faculty within the department have several major focus areas including cancer, immunology, cardiovascular disease, renal disease, diabetes, and genetics. The faculty consist of tenured associate and full professors, several of which currently hold endowed chairs or professorships. They interface with University of Minnesota departments and centers such as the Center for Immunology, Masonic Cancer Center, and the Institute for Translational Neuroscience.
The University of Pittsburgh's Department of Biomedical Informatics (DBMI) brings together a diverse group of faculty committed to improving biomedical research and clinical care through the application of innovative technologies. Currently funded projects explore areas such as genomic and proteomic data mining, natural language processing, machine learning, and biosurveillance.
The Department of Pathology at Yale, one of the first departments organized at Yale School of Medicine, is dedicated to continuing its long and distinguished tradition of world-renowned clinical care, cutting-edge scientific research, and rigorous training of the next generation of pathologists to be leaders in their field. With robust research investigations, teaching programs and exceptional clinical patient care, we are able to bring new knowledge and innovative therapeutic approaches to our patients and to medicine. Our dedication to excellence in both the clinical and the academic arenas is paramount to our mission as a Department and to our goal of advancing patient care through expert diagnostics and novel therapeutics.
