Community Hospital Pathology - PATH 543–G




UMMC Midtown Campus

Description and Goals:

The Department of Pathology at UMMC Midtown Campus is staffed by two full-time pathologists who are board certified in anatomic and clinical pathology. An elected rotation through pathology gives the student exposure to all phases of the clinical laboratory including blood bank, hematology, coagulation, chemistry, microbiology and cytology. The student is involved in the daily processing of surgical specimens, including gross and microscopic examination. Autopsy pathology is a feature of this rotation, however, autopsies are sporadic and the Department cannot be guaranteed to have one in any given time period.
