Graduate Program (Ph.D. and M.S.)
The CWRU Department of Pathology provides extensive opportunities for graduate training in Experimental Pathology, Immunology and Cancer Biology leading to the Ph.D. (or MD/Ph.D.) degree. A separate program leads to the MS degree (for CWRU employees only). Teaching faculty are based in the CWRU Department of Pathology and in other basic science and clinical departments at CWRU 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 postgraduate 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.
