PAT3 4010/F - Pathology

Cr Hrs: 3.5, 7
Session Length: 2 and 4 weeks


This is a face to face clinical rotation receiving 3.5 or 7 credit hours. The student should function with increased autonomy in patient care and must demonstrate competency in several of the Entrustable Professional Activities required for graduation. This elective is quite flexible and will be tailored to the student’s needs and desires. In its broadest sense, it will be a survey of techniques in anatomic and clinical pathology with heavy emphasis on clinical-pathologic correlation. If desired, the time may be structured to emphasize certain aspects of the laboratory such as hematology or microbiology. Emphasis will also be placed on how the clinician may maximally utilize pathology services in a hospital setting.
