The Department of Pathology is determined to provide residents with quality, high-yield educational materials. During the 2012-2013 academic year, two board-certified pathologists joined the department for the primary purpose of expanding educational resources available to residents.
Dr. Anne Mills, a recent graduate of Stanford University AP/CP residency program, is currently developing a pattern-based "Sound Bite" series that provides residents with a quick overview of challenging and less often entountered pathologic entities. These mini-lectures are created in tandem with faculty specialists from each organ system, which means you'll be hearing from the experts. In addition to pattern-based approaches to AP, the Sound Bites include CP topics such as Clinical Chemistry fellow Dr. Marisa Needham's talks on Biochemical Markers. Click on the links below to access some recent "Sound Bites," and stay tuned for more to come! Working in conjunction with our Pediatric pathologist Dr. Robin LeGallo, Anne has also created a self-review pediatric slide set that has received phenomenal reviews, particularly from residents who are preparing for the AP board examination.
Dr. Joanna Steere, a graduate from University of Pennsylvania AP/CP residency program and molecular pathology fellowship, is expanding the resident curriculum in molecular pathology.

Pediatric Pathology Self-Assessment
This self-assessment is a great way to test your knowledge after a review of the glass slide study set available in Surgical Pathology. In that study set, you will find review cards detailing key points about each diagnosis accompaying the slides. You can also access the review cards if you'd like a personal copy for quick review on your own.
