Pathology Residency at Mount Sinai Morningside and Mount Sinai West

The Pathology Residency Program at Mount Sinai Morningside and Mount Sinai West in affiliation with The Mount Sinai Hospital and Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai offers a concentrated program, which provides training in clinically oriented diagnostic anatomic and clinical pathology.

Our mission is to build the future of pathology through education, experience, and scholarship. We strive to inspire excellent anatomic and clinical pathologists through experiential learning, didactics, mentorship, and scholarship in preparation for future endeavors and challenges of the real-world medical field.

All of our attending staff are faculty members of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. Our residents have access to many of the facilities there. The department interacts closely with clinical departments through a variety of inter-departmental conferences and rounds. Our curriculum is oriented toward integrated human pathology, with the faculty working as a closely-knit group of general pathologists, each with a special field of expertise. The core curriculum consists of supervised training with emphasis on increasing resident responsibility in autopsy and surgical pathology, cytology, hematopathology, clinical chemistry, serology, microbiology and blood banking/transfusion medicine. Specialized training is offered in molecular pathology, dermatopathology, neuropathology, medical renal pathology, therapeutic apheresis and hematopoietic stem cell collection, laboratory management, and computer applications.
