The residency program in Pathology and Laboratory Medicine provides residents the opportunity to participate in patient care, teaching rounds and conferences.

Residents can pursue subspecialty rotations at Yale-New Haven Hospital, forensic pathology and toxicology at the Office of the Medical Examiner in Farmington and tissue typing in Farmington, American Red Cross.
