In order to improve communication between staff and pathology residents, the position of "chief resident" has been established. Reporting to the program director, the chief resident is a third-year resident whose duties consist of:

  • informing the staff and/or residents of any changes in the seminar, teaching, lecture or clinic schedules, as well as outside conference dates.
  • making necessary arrangements for seminars, case presentations, etc., including securing the room, audiovisual equipment and any other equipment needed.
  • serving as an ombudsman between the staff and residents.
  • assuming greater responsibility for initial diagnoses of cases.

A stipend of $21,000 per year and a tuition waiver are provided throughout the program to our residents.
