Residency Program

Welcome to the University of South Florida Residency Training Program Website. I hope you find the information herein helpful in learning about our residency program in Anatomic and Clinical Pathology, the Department of Pathology and Cell Biology, and most importantly the dedicated people who make our program what it is today.

Our ACGME-accredited residency training program is based at the University of South Florida Morsani College of Medicine, a community-based medical school with a class size of 120. Like the medical school, it draws from the educational opportunities at three major Tampa hospitals: the James A. Haley Veteran’s Administration Hospital, Moffitt Cancer Center and Research Institute, and Tampa General Hospital as well as three additional affiliated institutions. These include the Hillsborough County Medical Examiner’s office, Florida Blood Services (the nation’s second largest regional blood bank), and Bay Pines VA Hospital. With four residents accepted annually through ERAS, and eight fellowship positions, there are abundant opportunities for exposure to a wide variety of case types, patients, and teaching opportunities, as well as regional employment in the greater Tampa Bay area. The faculty: trainee ratio and number of pathology assistants at all institutions ensure adequate “scope time”, very reasonable call policies, and, most importantly, ample study and research opportunities. Our aim is to fully prepare you for, and tailor your training to, either a career in academics or private practice based on your interests and aptitudes.

Please visit the links to our resident profiles, their research accomplishments, and the background and research interests of our faculty members to learn more about our vibrant program.
