The Department of Pathology at LSU Health Sciences Center-New Orleans offers a fully ACGME accredited residency characterized as a combined Anatomic and Clinical (AP/CP) Pathology training program.  The four-year program utilizes rotations and supervising faculty at five (5) hosptials as well as a forensic center, all located in the metro New Orleans area.  The program is a blended curriculum that balances both AP and CP training and also offers unique experimental training in patient safety, quality improvement and pathology management, and laboratory leadership.  Residents graduate eligible for both American Board of Pathology certifying examinations and have case logs that show diverse technical training in autopsy, fine needle aspiration, bone marrow biopsy and frozen section.  Graduates from the program have been successful pathologists in both the academic and private practice settings and pursue a broad array of AP as well as CP fellowships.
