Baylor University Medical Center at Dallas’ Pathology Residency program is approved by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) to train 18 residents.
The residency program emphasizes all aspects of practical hands-on training, didactic instruction and clinicopathologic research. Under the supervision of faculty on the medical staff at Baylor University Medical Center, resident physicians learn to choose appropriate techniques to study specimens and implement procedures to reach a diagnosis. The comprehensive four-year program includes structured rotations in anatomic and clinical pathology, as well as elective time.
The anatomic pathology program includes a versatile surgical pathology service, autopsy pathology (including forensic pathology) and cytopathology.
The clinical pathology program features rotations in transfusion medicine, chemistry, hematology, microbiology and immunology. Subspecialty areas include molecular, cytogenetics, toxicology, virology, special hematology and flow cytometry.
