The division of Anatomic Pathology provides training in autopsy and surgical pathology,

pathology is available. The Division of Clinical Pathology includes clinical chemistry,
toxicology, hematology, blood banking, immunology, microbiology and virology, molecular
diagnostics, cytogenetics, tissue typing, and flow cytometry.
One of the strengths of this program is the opportunity to gain experience and
training in related services such as:

Akron Children's Hospital (pediatric pathology)
The program for each resident can be tailored to his or her interest and capabilities
with special emphasis in any of the subspecialties desired. Administrative and managerial
skills are included at all levels with the development of major responsibility in
the final year.
Active participation in research is encouraged.
