Welcome to UNC Pathology & Laboratory Medicine

Clinical Services and Laboratories

The McLendon Clinical Laboratories (MCL) provide clinical services in anatomic pathology and laboratory medicine to UNC Hospitals. The MCL web site includes a searchable list of the available clinical services and laboratory tests, forms and requisitions, test specifications, and the MCL directory.


Departmental Information and Directories 

Directories of our faculty members with linked biosketches, our departmental leadership, and our administrative staff are online. Also online are recent annual reports, a history of the Department, and a photographic archive of our faculty, trainees, and graduate students. 


Clinical Training Programs

Our Residency Program in Pathology at UNC Hospitals is a four-year program in anatomic and clinical pathology. We also offer fellowships in clinical chemistry, cytopathology, forensic pathology, hematopathology, immunology, laboratory genetics & genomics, microbiology, molecular genetic pathology, renal pathology, surgical pathology, and transfusion medicine. 

Doctoral and Post-doctoral Studies

Our Graduate Program in Pathobiology and Translational Science offers a Ph.D. degree in experimental pathology and is closely aligned with our specialized graduate training certificate programs. We also offer post-doctoral fellowships in research and in four clinical laboratories. 


Research Services and Core Laboratories

A variety of research services for scientists are available in our departmental core laboratories. These core facilities include the Translational Pathology Laboratory, the Animal Histopathology and Laboratory Medicine Core, and the Microscopy Services Laboratory.


Seminars and Continuing Medical Education

Grand Rounds is a weekly CME seminar series in the fall and spring semesters. The Pathobiology & Translational Science Seminar Series occurs twice monthly in the fall and spring semesters. Our 2018 CME Symposium, "Current Concepts and Diagnostic Challenges in Gastrointestinal, Liver, and Pancreatic Pathology," will be held in Chapel Hill on Saturday, May 5.
