  • I chose this program...

    because it is a smaller program with a lot of one-on-one learning from the attending pathologists and collaboration and teamwork with fellow residents. There is a large surgical volume and no fellows so the resident gains great experience. The daily unknown/consensus conference also provides a great learning opportunity. I also enjoy living in the area.

  • What do you get/benefit from by choosing this program over another, similar program?

    Our program provides a nice work-life balance for the residents with typical hours of work from 7:30 AM – 5:00 PM so the resident is then able to accomplish their reading and studying from home during the evenings and on weekends. Our call is also taken from home, which allows the resident a break from the hospital setting. With the lack of fellows, we also have the opportunity to present at multidisciplinary conferences. Our rotation schedule is a mix of AP and CP over the 4 years rather than separating them by training year, so you keep the knowledge fresh in your mind.
