About Pathology and Laboratory Medicine
The UK College of Medicine Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine has demonstrated strengths in education, scholarship, and clinical service.
The graduate medical education program is outstanding, and includes fellowship programs in cytopathology, clinical chemistry, neuropathology, and surgical pathology. The faculty and house staff provide excellent coverage for interdisciplinary conferences for many disciplines and boards.
Scholarship within the department is strong, with two to three peer-reviewed publications per faculty member per year. The department has a modest base of extramural funding and a strong research enterprise within the department includes intradepartmental involvement including the other basic science departments and centers that need pathologists as co-investigators.
The faculty of the department of pathology provides a full range of medical management and clinical services at six sites: UK Chandler Hospital and UK Good Samaritan Hospital, the VA Medical Center, the Commonwealth of Kentucky Medical Examiner, the Kentucky Blood Center, and the St. Claire Medical Center. The clinical services are fully accredited and licensed by the appropriate agencies (College of American Pathologists, American Association of Blood Banks, and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration).
