Pathology-Anatomic and Clinical Residency Curriculum


Anatomic and clinical pathology training at Baylor College of Medicine provides for an excellent, comprehensive pathology education that prepares trainees for academic, community, and private practice. 

The program offers diverse clinical experiences with core rotations at Ben Taub Hospital, Michael E. DeBakey Veterans Affairs Medical Center, Texas Children's Hospital, and Baylor St. Luke's Medical Center. The forensic autopsy month is completed at Harris County Institute of Forensic Science (HCIFS). Each institution offers unique, complementary cases (including transplant cases) from diverse patient populations including pediatrics, veterans, and uninsured or underinsured Harris county patients. The majority of hospitals are located within the Texas Medical Center and are within walking distance of each other.

In addition to internal electives, residents have outside elective opportunities at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center (MDACC), Houston Methodist Hospital (HMH), and UT Health Science Center at Houston.

We encourage residents to participate in local and regional pathology organizations, including the Texas Society of Pathologists (TSP) and Houston Society of Clinical Pathologists (HSCP) and strongly support trainee representation in national organizations such as United States and Canadian Academy of Pathology (USCAP), College of American Pathologists (CAP) and American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP).
