The Department of Pathology at The University of Virginia embraces the central role of its discipline at an academic medical center, fully engaging in clinical, educational and research missions. Our clinical faculty have an international reputation in diagnostic expertise, solidified by authorship and editorship of major medical texts and journals. Our faculty carries out research that spans the spectrum of biomedical inquiry: basic research into biological and disease mechanisms, translational research that brings advances in experimental science to clinical utility in diagnostics and therapeutics, and clinical research that refines and advances current medical practice. Our trainees are integral to the success of our Department, and our training programs in anatomic, clinical and experimental pathology are designed for trainees to both learn from the expertise of their faculty mentors and grow as independent clinicians and researchers.
I invite you to explore our website to see how our faculty, staff and trainees are participating in the transfer of existing knowledge to provide exceptional diagnostic services to our patients, and are participating in the discovery of new knowledge and development of new technologies to push the boundaries of our discipline forward.
