Our nationally recognized program provides comprehensive education to 16 combined anatomic (AP) and clinical (CP) pathology residency trainees.
Welcome to Pathology & Laboratory Medicine at Loyola!
Our department comprises a world-class team of faculty, staff, residents and fellows that serve as a critical component to the nationally recognized Loyola Medicine, a leader in the study and treatment of human disease. We truly live and work by the tenet that behind every slide is a real person.
Our highly trained physicians direct the use of state-of-the-art technology that enables all of our staff to handle more than 2.5 million billable inpatient and outpatient procedures annually – including over 35,000 surgical specimens and 22,000 cytology specimens each year. Our extensive exposure to all aspects of anatomic and clinical pathology, including some of the most difficult case areas, creates an unparalleled depth of experience. All 14 clinical laboratories in the department are committed to providing accurate laboratory testing and diagnostic results in a timely manner, mentoring future pathologists and laboratory professionals, and analyzing the causes and treatment of human pathology.
I encourage you to explore this site to learn more about our comprehensive offerings of residency, fellowships, residency, and ongoing research programs. This website is but a snap-shot of the department. I encourage you to re-visit frequently, check out our weekly Pathology Free Press, like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.

As a resident at Loyola you will rotate through the various divisions of the clinical laboratories, the autopsy service, and surgical pathology sections. There is ample opportunity for teaching (medical students, medical laboratory scientists etc.). In addition, elective rotations are available for additional training in subspecialty areas of interest. If desired, there is also opportunity for investigative work in experimental pathology. ACGME accredited fellowship training is offered in Cytopathology, Dermatopathology and Hematopathology. In addition, we also offer a Surgical Pathology fellowship geared toward the personal interests of the trainee. Residents at Loyola combine their practices across our facilities at both the Loyola University Healthcare System and the Hines VA Hospital. The two facilities have a total of 1,568 beds, and are immediately adjacent to one another. Across both institutions, approximately 100 autopsies, more than 30,000 surgical cases, 28,000 cytology cases and about 2.3 million laboratory procedures are performed annually.
