With a rich tradition of excellence in medicine, research and education, the University of Florida Department of Pathology, Immunology and Laboratory Medicine is composed of six divisions, including:
We employ pathologists who are knowledgeable in all pathology sub-specialties. Our physicians regularly review and diagnose patient diseases and conditions quickly, accurately and professionally.
Our Department capably performs medically relevant extramural research grants-funded studies on myriad health topics, such as:
- Stem cell and regenerative medicine
- Epithelial biology
Our educational programs focus primarily on anatomic and clinical pathology. Training is generally linked between the two disciplines throughout a four-year program, but concentrated training in either discipline can be accomplished in three years:
- Anatomic Pathology (AP): In learning this discipline, macro- and microscopic examination of tissue is performed and linked with molecular analyses by morphological methods.
- Clinical Pathology (CP): Patient care is delivered through performing chemical or molecular analyses, microbiology, blood-banking, tissue-typing, and other laboratory methods.
- Residents and fellows benefit from the balanced strength of our six divisions and gain broad experience at one of the most complete medical centers in the country.
