AP Orientation

Pathology & Lab Medicine

The first month of residency is an orientation rotation in surgical pathology which covers frozen sections, grossing, read out, and signout at both Main and ART hospitals. All the first year residents are on 3 day schedules at alternating hospitals (for a grand 6 day schedule covering all of surgical pathology). Upper level residents are also on each of these rotations (along with appropriate faculty) to give the first year residents an orientation, direct supervision, and substantial preliminary experience in all facets of surgical pathology.
