Program Overview

Anatomic and Clinical Pathology Residency Program

The residency program in anatomic and clinical pathology and laboratory medicine provides residents the opportunity to participate in patient care, teaching rounds, and conferences. Residents learn to interpret flow cytometry and gene rearrangement studies in our state-of-the-art molecular pathology laboratory. They 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.

The residency program in Anatomic and Clinical Pathology is the oldest residency at Danbury Hospital, accredited since 1958. Our residents interact in a multitude of ways with other Danbury Hospital staff and attending physicians in all departments and residency programs.

These interactions include a variety of clinicopathologic correlation in the form of:

  • Clinical rounds
  • Formal clinicopathologic conferences

Our residents also serve on a number of multidisciplinary Hospital committees and Tumor Boards, including Blood Bank Committee, Medical Education Committee, Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee, and Infection Control and Ethics Committee.

The above activities allow for a wealth of exposure of our residents to the whole spectrum of the healthcare delivery system, as well as providing for plentiful interactions with house staff from our institution's other residency programs and attending physicians.
