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

Clinical Training Programs

Our Residency Program in Pathology at UNC Hospitals is a four-year training program in anatomic pathology and clinical pathology. We also offer clinical fellowships in clinical chemistry, cytopathology, forensic pathology, hematopathology, clinical immunology, laboratory genetics & genomics, clinical 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 through our departmental core labs. These core facilities include the Translational Pathology Laboratory, the Animal Histopathology and Laboratory Medicine Core, and the Microscopy Services Laboratory.

Seminars, Symposia, and CME

Our 2020 CME symposium has been postponed. Grand Rounds is our CME seminar series in the fall and spring semesters. The graduate program’s Pathobiology & Translational Science Seminar Series occurs twice monthly during the spring semester. This past year’s events included our 2019 CME Symposium, the 8th Oliver Smithies Nobel Symposium, our Annual Research Symposium, and the 15th Annual Marc J. Mass Memorial Lecture.
