About Pathology

Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine

The Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at the University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine entered into the School's first affiliation agreement for lab services with Aurora Diagnostics in 2015. Board-certified pathologists work to review specimens and analyze lab and test results. These highly trained specialists also provide consulting services on the severity of medical conditions and educate physicians on the most effective treatment options.

Pathologists at the School of Medicine maintain close relationships with local physicians and specialists in hematology and oncology in order to provide the best patient care. Pathologists instill these strong communication skills into Nevada medical students to ensure future physicians understand the importance of increasing medical knowledge and education in the community.
