A Message from the Co-Chief Residents

Welcome to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center Pathology Residency webpage. Here, you will find an overview of our residency program as well as great resources about life in Cincinnati.

The University of Cincinnati combined AP/CP program offers premier training at a diverse academic medical center. Through our program, residents have the opportunity to rotate through recognized institutions such as Cincinnati Children’s Hospital and Hoxworth Blood Center, in addition to home rotations at UCMC. Our residents gain breadth and depth of experience in numerous subspecialty fields encompassing anatomic and clinical pathology through our carefully crafted curriculum.

Our program recruits residents with a wide range of experiences, skills, and interests from all over the country and abroad. As residents, we are encouraged throughout our training to pursue our individual passions through research, subspecialty electives, teaching opportunities, and away rotations. Faculty mentors are readily available to provide mentorship and guidance throughout the four-year training program, and they actively support the endeavors of our resident. We are proud to have seen our seniors graduate and go on to excel in a variety of career paths.

Notably, our Diagnostic Laboratory Management rotation series for clinical pathology education and subspecialized sign out for anatomic pathology are examples of our uniquely structured and engaging curriculum that sets us apart from other pathology programs. However, our identifying attributes as a program are not limited to these. We are always seeking ways to make our residency program stronger, both from an educational and quality of life standpoint by working closely with our program and hospital leadership to continuously improve.  The faculty in the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine are innovative teachers who are committed to the educational experience of trainees. We have award-winning attendings and many of our affiliated pathologists are both nationally and world renowned.  Moreover, our dedicated support staff make our jobs enjoyable, allowing us to function as happy and productive pathologists in training.

Excitingly, we have just launched our official social media representation on Twitter. The account displays resident led cases of the week, highlights resident awards and achievements, and showcases unique experiences in resident education as well as the latest updates about our program.

Finally, one of our program’s strongest attributes is the close-knit group of residents who create a robust support system during the challenging years of residency. Outside of work, we often spend time together exploring Cincinnati, whether exploring the newest restaurants in the cultural Over-The-Rhine neighborhood, visiting the Cincinnati zoo, or celebrating life events such as birthdays. We are pleased to tell you that Cincinnati has incredible diversity in terms of culture, education, family, music, and outdoor activity.

We are very excited about our program and would be happy to tell you more. Please feel free to contact us with questions or comments.

Co-Chiefs Divya S. and Fatou
