Pathology Residency Programs
The UBC Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine is the academic home to a wide variety of exceptional individuals who create and convey knowledge related to the causes (etiology) and mechanisms (pathogenesis) of disease, enabling translation into improved diagnosis, prognosis and management of patients and populations (service). This in large part defines the “business” we are in. The Department has major roles in undergraduate medical and residency education, continuing professional development-knowledge translation (CPD-KT), and in the education of allied health professions.Current Residents

Unfortunately, there are no UBC funded fellowships in Pathology. However, fellowships funded by a specific hospital site are sometimes available. These include cytopathology at the BC Cancer Agency, general surgical pathology through Royal Columbian Hospital, and possibly GI pathology through Vancouver General Hospital. Enrollment in such a fellowship is at the discretion of the individual preceptor. Fellowships funded through external agencies (eg. IMG residents wishing to complete additional training in a specific area or CMG residents funded by an agency to complete additional training in a specific area) are sometimes available at the discretion of the individual preceptor. In the past, such fellowships have been completed in Bone & Soft Tissue, Head & Neck, Breast, Gynecologic, Gastrointestinal & Hematopathology. Although we do provide certificates of completion, fellowships are not credentialed by the Royal College. Pls contact Shelley Berkow, Residency Program Manager for more information.
