PATHOLOGY RESIDENCY PROGRAM

"The Pathology Training Program at Winthrop strives for an optimal learning experience through teaching and supervision, with residents exposed to a wide range of unusual and challenging cases."






Virginia Donovan, MD
Message from the Chairman

With a total of 8 residency positions and 10 full-time attending pathologists, the Pathology Training Program at Winthrop-University Hospital provides residents with an optimal learning experience through teaching and supervision. They are exposed to a wide range of unusual and challenging tertiary care cases, as well as more commonly encountered conditions. The Department processes 20,000 surgical pathology and 3.1 million clinical pathology specimens annually.

The surgical services are enhanced by a strong regional referral base and include very active cardiothoracic and gynecologic oncology components. What's more, Winthrop has an eminent regional Poison Control Center onsite.

Proximity and convenient access to New York City ensure abundant exposure to pathology conferences of national and international caliber, and the local Nassau County Society of Pathologists provides educational opportunities of equal quality. The combination of on- and offsite learning provides residents with a comprehensive educational opportunity of superb quality and intensity.

Introduction & Philosophy

Dr. Donald Brand, Director of Health Outcomes, discusses poster with Dr. Sambit Mohanty

In the Anatomic Pathology Program, an optimal pathologist-to-resident ratio provides an excellent learning opportunity. Using double-headed microscopes, residents fully participate with their attending pathologist.

Active learning, across the full spectrum of disease, is enhanced by regularly scheduled, consultant-conducted slide seminars in pediatric pathology, pulmonary pathology, renal pathology, orthopaedic pathology and dermatopathology. Similar in-house instruction covers neuropathology, cytopathology, Ob/Gyn pathology and routine diagnostic gross and microscopic surgical pathology, as well as autopsy pathology. Pathologists' assistants ensure that residents are not overburdened with service commitments.


Dr. Steven Drexler and Dr. Jonathan Klein beside Poster Presentation at Housestaff Research Day
Invited experts participate in a year-round seminar series providing updates on current topics in pathology. Complex and difficult cases are regularly reviewed at multi-headed slide conferences, which increase the residents' exposure to case material. A liberal conference and elective rotation policy encourages residents to pursue areas of special interest.

The comprehensive Clinical Pathology Program is supported by a full-service hospital laboratory that processes over 3 million specimens annually. With an impressive MD and PhD faculty, expert instruction in all aspects of clinical pathology is offered, and didactic lectures enhance exposure to an enormous amount of clinical material in the lab and at the bedside. Residents participate in on-call decision-making. Quality improvement and lab management strategies are incorporated into the curriculum, and a wide variety of interdisciplinary activities round out the total learning experience. Subspecialty laboratory rotations include cytogenetics, virology and molecular pathology.


Louis Ragolia, PhD, Christopher Hall, BS and Thomas Palaia, MS from Winthrop’s Bench Research Lab proudly stand with Dr. Dominick Giovanniello in front of his poster presentation.
Residents present seminars on chosen topics and participate in all levels of departmental research activity. The majority of Winthrop's pathology residents publish in refereed journals during their training period, and the success rate in passing the pathology boards has been high in recent years.

Following their training, residents apply for and obtain prime fellowships in areas of their choice. Job placement following fellowship has been good.
