Message from the Chairwoman
The Pathology Training Program at NYU Winthrop Hospital provides residents with an optimal learning experience through teaching and supervision with a total of nine residency positions and 15 full-time attending pathologists. Residents are exposed to a wide range of unusual and challenging tertiary care cases, as well as more commonly encountered conditions. The Department processes 50,000 surgical pathology specimens and 5 million clinical pathology specimens annually. An average of 90-100 autopsies are performed yearly and 5,500 cytopathology specimens are tested. The surgical services are enhanced by a strong regional referral base and include very active cardiothoracic and gynecologic oncology components.
Proximity and convenient access to New York City ensure abundant exposure to pathology conferences of national and international caliber, and the local NY Path Society provides educational opportunities of equal quality. The combination of on and offsite learning provides residents with a comprehensive educational opportunity of superb quality and intensity.
Message from the Program Director
"A tree is known by its fruits" and I am very proud that our residents are consistently accepted into top competitive fellowship programs across the country, and are able to excel in both academic careers and busy private practices. Our program was established in 1951 and continues to strive to produce pathologists who are knowledgeable and experienced in all aspects of pathology, with a superior commitment to lifelong learning and providing excellent patient care. With nine AP/CP residents and 15 pathologists, our program stands out as a small family-oriented and tightly knit group. The entire faculty is devoted to teaching and providing superb patient care. The residents are exposed to a great variety of "bread and butter" cases, and complex and unusual cases that provide them with a strong foundation in both Anatomic and Clinical Pathology.
