Full-time and Community Faculty with the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine are extensively involved in training medical students and residents in the field of pathology. First and second-year medical students receive sub-specialized training in classroom and lab-based settings in an 11-block curriculum in the following areas:

  • Hematopathology
  • Cytopathology
  • Gastrointestinal pathology
  • Urinary pathology
  • Dermatopathology
  • Pediatric pathology
  • Molecular diagnostics
  • Gynecological/breast pathology
  • Transfusion medicine

Having a full-time residency program is a future goal of the department, which will certainly help with improving access to lab services in northern Nevada. Stay tuned for more information on possible development of this program.
