Immunopathology Rotation

Pathology & Lab Medicine

During the Immunopathology block, residents will gain proficiency in the interpretation of light, immunofluorescence, and electron microscopy in the diagnosis of renal disease. Clinical correlation and laboratory data with renal biopsy findings will be taught on a one on one basis with the attending. The resident will learn to assess renal biopsies for adequacy by gross inspection, and given the degree of specimen adequacy coupled with the clinical and laboratory data provided, optimally divide the specimen for light, immunofluorescence, and electron microscopy. 

Residents will also gain proficiency in the use of immunofluorescence microscopy in the evaluation of skin diseases and in the evaluation of Endomyocardial biopsies. 

A basic understanding of the principles of operation of clinical flow cytometers as they apply to clinical samples will be developed during these months.
