The program is ACGME approved for four years of combined training
in Anatomic and Clinical Pathology. The pathology residency training utilizes
a consortium of three teaching hospitals. The particular strengths of
each of these hospitals exposes the trainees to a wide variety of material,
expertise, and practice settings. Two years of the program involve training
in Autopsy and Surgical Pathology. Two more years are devoted to Laboratory
Medicine. Elective subspecialty training is available to interested individuals
in most areas of pathology. NJMS-Department of Pathology and Laboratory
Medicine encourages resident participation in the research activity of the department.
The University of Medicine and Dentistry for New Jersey, Newark
Campus, is in the major cultural, educational, commercial, transportation, and
population center of New Jersey and is just a short distance from New York City.
