Graduate Programs (PhD and MS)
The CWRU Department of Pathology provides extensive opportunities for research training in cancer biology, immunology, neurodegeneration, and other areas leading to the PhD (or MD/PhD) degree.
In addition, the CWRU Department of Pathology sponsors two MS Programs. The Plan B MS Degree Program provides enhanced educational credentials for full-time students pursuing a variety of career paths (Healthcare or Research). The Plan A MS Degree Program provides part-time, research-focused training for CWRU employees.
Teaching faculty are based in the CWRU Department of Pathology and in other basic science and clinical departments at the CWRU School of Medicine and CWRU-affiliated hospitals (University Hospitals of Cleveland, Cleveland Clinic Foundation, MetroHealth Medical Center and the Louis Stokes VA Medical Center).
Our program offers rigorous, balanced training in anatomic and clinical pathology within a large thriving academic medical center. The faculty members of the department are enthusiastic teachers committed to post-graduate pathology education. The goal of our program is to provide a supportive and congenial atmosphere in which our residents can develop to their full potential and find their niche in the diverse field of pathology.
