The Laboratory Medicine and Pathology residency training program at the University of Minnesota Medical School is distinctive in having a nationally recognized commitment to both clinical and anatomic pathology and the structural flexibility to customize training plans for community, academic, and research careers.
The department provides four years of combined anatomic and clinical, and three years of anatomic or clinical pathology-only, residency training to its physicians-in-training who continually make successful academic progress toward the independent practice of laboratory medicine and pathology.
