The Academic Program
Pathology (PATH) is the study of aberrations or deviations of organs or systems that result in disease. Instruction in pathology is open to undergraduate, graduate, medical students, and residents. All medical students may elect to take PATH 515 as a part of the problem-based learning curriculum. The required PATH 541 provides essential autopsy experience for all second- third- and fourth-year medical students. Third and fourth-year students may choose electives PATH 545 and 699 that include instruction in laboratory medicine for the practicing physician, clinical pathology, anatomic pathology, clinical immunology, and molecular diagnostics and directed research projects.
The department directs an integrated residency program in pathology. Residents are based at Kaiser Hospital, Queen’s Medical Center, Kapiolani Medical Center for Women and Children, the Honolulu Medical Examiner Office, and the Blood Bank of Hawai‘i. Clinical faculty come from all the community hospitals and provide gross and microscopic specimens for demonstration, clinico-pathologic correlations, seminars, and lectures.
