NYU Winthrop Hospital Pathology is able to provide an optimal pathologist-to-resident ratio which allows for an excellent learning opportunity for our residents. With 50,000 surgical pathology specimens along with 5,500 cytopathology specimens, approximately 100 autopsies and over 5 million clinical specimens processed annually, the residents are exposed to a wide variety of cases in all disciplines of pathology.
Attendings and residents at multiheaded microscope
Active learning, across the full spectrum of disease, is enhanced by protected time to attend regularly scheduled conferences. A two-year curriculum covers all organ systems with didactic lectures, slide review, case-based Clinical Pathology (CP) on-call conference and board review conferences. Complex and difficult cases are regularly reviewed at multi-headed slide conferences, which increase the residents’ exposure to case material. In addition to conventional lectures and conferences, residents attend and participate in quality improvement projects, autopsy quality assurance, radiology-pathology conferences, surgical morbidity and mortality, multidisciplinary tumor boards, journal club and quarterly research meetings.
